Natural convection from a vertical plate embedded in a stratified medium with uniform heat source
Saha, Suvash C., Gu, YuanTong, Molla, Md. Mamun, Siddiqa, Sadia, & Hossain, Md. Anwar (2012) Natural convection from a vertical plate embedded in a stratified medium with uniform heat source. Desalination and Water Treatment : Science and Engineering, 44(1-3), pp. 7-14.
Natural convection flow from an isothermal vertical plate with uniform heat source embedded in a stratified medium has been discussed in this paper. The resulting momentum and energy equations of boundary layer approximation are made non-similar by introducing the usual non-similarity transformations. Numerical solutions of these equations are obtained by an implicit finite difference method for a wide range of the stratification parameter, X. The solutions are also obtained for different values of pertinent parameters, namely, the Prandtl number, Pr and the heat generation or absorption parameter, λ and are expressed in terms of the local skin-friction and local heat transfer, which are shown in the graphical form. Effect of heat generation or absorption on the streamlines and isotherms are also shown graphically for different values of λ.
