Abstract

"In the study of fluid flow over heated surfaces, it is customary to neglect the effects of buoyancy force when the flow is horizontal. However, such a practice is not justified when the forced flow is along an inclined or a vertical surface, because under these conditions the buoyancy force modifies considerably the flow field and hence the heat transfer rate from the surface. Such a flow is termed combined forced and free convective flow.

The present study is concerned with the effects of buoyancy force on forced convection along an isothermal vertical cylinder and a flat plate. This type of problems does not admit similarity solutions. The non-similarity arises both from the transverse curvature of the cylinder and from the buoyancy effect. In addition, owing to the presence of the buoyancy force, the flow and thermal fields are coupled through the conservation equations"--Introduction, page 1.
