This work investigates entropy generation in a steady flow of viscous incompressible fluids between two infinite parallel porous plates. The fluid temperature variation is due to asymmetric heating of the porous plates as well as viscous dissipation. Two different physical situations are discussed with their entropy generation profiles: (i) Couette flow with suction/injection and (ii) pressure-driven Poiseuille flow with suction/injection. In each case, closed form expressions for entropy generation number and Bejan number are derived in dimensionless form by using the expressions for velocity and temperature which are derived by solving the resulting momentum and energy equations by the method of undetermined coefficient. The effect of the governing parameters on velocity, temperature, entropy generation and Bejan number are extensively discussed with the help of graphs. It is interesting to remark that entropy generation number increases with suction on one porous plate while it decreases on the other porous plate with injection. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
