Abstract

A similarity analysis of the steady free convection boundary layer over vertical and horizontal surfaces embedded in a fluid-saturated porous medium with mixed thermal boundary conditions is performed in this paper. New variables relating the similarity solutions of the Darcian velocity and temperature profiles associated with different values of the mixed thermal boundary condition parameter have been obtained. Boundary layer velocity and temperature profiles have been determined numerically for some values of the mixed thermal boundary condition parameter ε and the similarity exponent m.
