ABSTRACT

In this article, the problem of buoyancy-induced flow over a horizontal or a vertical flat plate embedded in a fluid-saturated non-Darcy porous medium is studied. Forchheimer extension is considered in the flow equations. Similarity solutions for the transformed governing equations are obtained, with a prescribed variable surface temperature or variable surface heat flux, for each position of the plate. Values of the slip velocity, Nusselt number for variable surface temperature as well as excess surface temperature for variable surface heat flux, and the total heat transfer as well as the momentum flux, which are plotted in figures, have been presented for different values of the given parameters for the two cases of horizontal and vertical plates.
