Based on three immediate consequences of the governing equations corresponding to some unidirectional motions of rate type fluids, new motion problems are tackled for exact solutions. For generality purposes, exact solutions are developed for shear stress boundary value problems of generalized Burgers fluids. Such solutions, for which the shear stress instead of its differential expressions is given on the boundary, are lack in the literature for such fluids. Consequently, the first exact solutions for motions of rate type fluids induced by an infinite plate or a circular cylinder that applies a constant shear f or an oscillating shear f sin(ωt) to the fluid are here presented. In addition, all steady-state solutions can easily be reduced to known solutions for second grade and Newtonian fluids.
