An analytical solution is derived for the steady state, purely tangential flow of a viscoelastic fluid obeying the simplified Phan-Thien-Tanner (SPTT) constitutive equation in a concentric annulus with inner cylinder rotation. The influence of the Weissenberg number, aspect ratio and an elongational parameter on the velocity profile and fRe are investigated. The results show that fRe decreases with increasing fluid elasticity (eWe2 ) and radius ratio. The results also show that the velocity gradient near rotating cylinder increases when the fluid elasticity increases which indicating shear-thinning behavior of fluid.
