SINOPSIS

A nonsimilar boundary layer analysis is presented for the problem of free convection in power-law type non-Newtonian fluids along a horizontal plate with variable wall temperature or heat flux distribution. Numerical results are presented for the details of the velocity and temperature fields. A discussion is provided for the effect of viscosity index on the surface heat transfer rate.
