The flow in an elastico-viscous fluid between two co-axial infinite rotating porous discs is considered for high cross flow Reynolds number. The discs are rotating with different angular velocity and the injection rate of the fluid at one disc is different from the suction rate of other disc. The effect of suction parameters on the velocity components have been investigated numerically and solved by iterative methods/finite difference methods and depicted graphically. This study has immense practical utility especially when the fluid is non-Newtonian. The results are applicable in the chemical industry using fluids of higher Reynolds numbers.
