    • Abstract


      BD-FRW universe filled with imperfect fluid having bulk viscosity is investigated under the framework of Israel-Stewart-Hiscock causal theory. The field equations have been solved by using the relationφ=KRα whereK andα are constants, between the Brans-Dicke scalar fieldϕ and the scale factorR. This relation, in fact, leads to a constant deceleration parameterq. It is shown that the constancy of the deceleration parameter permits only two possibilities i.e. eitherH=constant withm=1 orm=(1+bα)/(2(1+b) −α), irrespective of the value ofɛ.
