Title

Mixed Convection Over a Horizontal Plate

Abstract

It is well known that thermal buoyancy forces play a significant role in forced convection heat transfer when the flow velocity is relatively small and the temperature difference between the surface and the free stream is relatively large. It is clear from previous studies that the available results for horizontal plates are limited to small values of the buoyancy parameter. This fact motivated this study to provide results for mixed convection over heated horizontal plates for the entire range of the buoyancy parameter from pure forced to pure free convection.
