The couette flow between two horizontal parallel porous flat plates with transverse sinusoidal injection of the fluid at the lower plate and it's corresponding removal by constant suction through the upper plate has been analyzed when both the plates are in motion. Due to this type of injection, the flow becomes Three-dimensional. For small perturbation approximate, the analytical method is applied to obtain the expressions for the velocity and temperature fields. The effect of injection/ suction velocity on the flow field, skin Friction and heat transfer are reported and discussed with the help of graphs and tables.
