Abstract: We consider the equation of a second grade fluid with vanishing viscosity, also known as Camassa--Holm equation, and we prove local existence and uniqueness of solutions for smooth initial data. We also give a blow-up condition which implies that the solution is global in dimension 2. Finally, we prove the convergence of the solutions of second grade fluid equation to the solution of the Camassa--Holm equation as the viscosity tends to zero.
