Free Convection over 3 Vertical Flat Plate with a Variable Wall Temperature and Internal Heat Generation in a Porous Medium Saturated with a Non-Newtonian Fluid
A boundary-layer analysis is performed in this paper for the free convection ﬂow over a vertical flat plate embedded in a porous medium saturated by a power-law non-Newtonian fluid. It is assumed that the temperature is a function of the distance from the origin, and that there is an internal heat source within the porous medium. Similarity solutions are derived for the governing equations and then used to study the effects of the power-law temperature parameter and power-law ﬂuid index on the heat transfer characteristics.
