The aim of this paper is to determine analytic solutions to the steady/unsteady 2-D flows of a Newtonian fluid passing through a porous media. Using the stream function, the analytical general solutions of the non-linear equations corresponding to boundary-layer flows are determined by employing the extended approach of variable separation. Some specific flow problems, described by given initial and boundary conditions, are investigated using the obtained general analytic solutions.
