A viscous incompressible fluid between two plane boundaries is stratified by maintaining the planes at different temperatures. The upper plane moves with a uniform velocity. The suction/injection mechanism with constant injection velocity at the upper plane and suction velocity varying sinusoidally along the lower plane with a wave numberk is introduced at the boundaries. The steady linearised equations are solved using similarity variables for the velocity components. The wave numberk is shown to be effective in controlling the boundary layer thickness.
