The geometry of laminar flow of an unsteady viscous liquid with uniform
distribution of dust particles through a channel having triangular cross-section
under the influence of time dependent pressure gradient has been considered. The intrinsic decomposition of flow equations are carried out in Frenet frame field system. Initially the fluid and dust particles are assumed to be at rest. The exact solutions for velocities of fluid and dust particles are obtained using variable separable and Laplace transform techniques. Further the skin friction at the boundary plates are also calculated, and the changes in the velocity profiles with s and n are shown graphically

Keywords and Phrases : Frenet frame field system; triangular cross-section, channel, laminar flow, dusty fluid; velocity of dust phase and fluid phase.
