Abstract

The steady flow over a static plate immersed in a copper-water nanofluid with the bottom surface of the plate heated by convection is considered. Similarity solutions for the flow and the thermal fields are possible if the convective heat transfer from the hot fluid on the lower surface of the plate varies like x-1/2, where x is the distance from the leading edge. The governing partial differential equations are first transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations, before being solved numerically. The results indicate that the inclusion of nanoparticles into the base fluid produces an increase in the skin friction coefficient and the heat transfer rate at the surface.
