Abstract

The mixed convection boundary layer flow on a vertical stationary or moving plate to a power-law non-Newtonian fluid is analyzed. An exact similarity solution is derived for the case when the surface temperature is inversely proportional to the distance from the leading edge of the plate. A discussion is provided on the effects of the flow index and buoyancy parameter on the velocity and temperature fields.
