Title

Buoyancy Effects in Boundary Layers on Inclined, Continuous, Moving Sheets

Abstract

The problem of heat transfer in boundary layer on a continuous, moving surface has many practical applications in manufacturing processes in industry and has been investigated by many authors (see, for example, [1 5]). However, aside from the work of Chen and Strobel [5], the buoyancy force effects resulting from the temperature differences in the fluid were neglected in all the previous studies. In the present paper, we examine analytically the buoyancy force effects on the heat transfer characteristics of laminar boundary layer adjacent to an inclined, continuous flat sheet that moves in a fluid at rest.
