AB - The velocity field and the associated shear stress corresponding to the torsional oscillatory flow of a fractional Oldroyd-B fluid, also called generalized Oldroyd-B fluid (GOF), between two infinite coaxial circular cylinders, are determined by means of the Laplace and Hankel transforms. Initially, the fluid and cylinders are at rest and after some time both cylinders suddenly begin to oscillate around their common axis with different angular frequencies of their velocities. The exact analytic solutions of the velocity field and associated shear stress, that have been obtained, are presented under integral and series forms in terms of generalized G and R functions. Moreover, these solutions satisfy the governing differential equation and all imposed initial and boundary conditions. The respective solutions for the motion between the cylinders, when one of them is at rest, can be obtained from our general solutions. Furthermore, the corresponding solutions for the similar flow of classical Oldroyd-B, generalized Maxwell, classical Maxwell, generalized second grade, classical second grade and Newtonian fluids are also obtained as limiting cases of our general solutions.
