In this research, entropy generation for non-Newtonian fluid flow with constant viscosity is considered. The governing nonlinear equations of motion are solved analytically with regular perturbation techniques. Third grade fluid is employed to account for the non-Newtonian influence. The influence of some physical parameters involved in the analysis is studied. Results show that the parameter has the tendency of increasing the velocity of the fluid flow as well as the temperature of the cylindrical pipe. It is observed that as the Brinkman parameter increases, the cylindrical wall temperature is enhanced. Entropy generation number for both heat transfer and fluid friction for various values of and is examined. Results indicate that increase in these parameters increases the temperature of the cylinder, thereby increasing the entropy generation number.
