An initial value investigation is made of the motion of an incompressible, homogeneous, viscous fluid bounded by a porous plate with uniform suction or blowing. Both the plate and the fluid are in a state of solid body rotation with constant angular velocity about the z axis normal to the plate, and additionally a nontorsional oscillation of a given frequency is superimposed on the plate for the generation of an unsteady flow in the rotating system. By using the Laplace transform technique, an exact solution of the three dimensional Navier-Stokes equations for unsteady flow is obtained. The structure of the associated multiple boundary layers is determined. Effects of uniform suction (or blowing) and rotation on the flow phenomena are analyzed. Several known results of interest are found to follow as particular cases of the solution of the problem considered.
