This research examines a squeezing flow with the characteristics of heat transfer in a viscous fluid. This fluid is squeezed between two parallel plates. The retrieved highly nonlinear equations are converted to a fourth-order single nonlinear differential equation for flow and a second-order differential equation for heat by using appropriate similarity transformation. A differential transform method (DTM) is applied to get the approximate solution of flow and heat transfer equations. The effect of different physical parameters is also discussed and presented graphically. To show the accuracy and exactness of DTM, numeric values of the skin-friction coefficient and Nusselt number are compared with previously published works and numerical methods.
