The purpose of this paper is to study the non-isothermal Poiseuille flow between two heated parallel inclined plates using incompressible couple stress fluids. Reynold's model is used for temperature dependent viscosity. We have developed highly non-linear coupled ordinary differential equations from momentum and energy equations. The Perturbation technique is used to obtain the approximate analytical expressions for velocity and temperature distributions. Expressions for velocity field, temperature distribution, dynamic pressure, volume flow rate, average velocity and shear stress on the plates are obtained. The influence of various emerging parameters on the flow problem is discussed and presented graphically.
