Heat transfer over an unsteady stretching sheet in a micropolar fluid with prescribed surface heat flux

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The unsteady laminar flow of an incompressible micropolar fluid over a stretching sheet with prescribed surface heat flux is investigated. The governing partial differential boundary layer equations are first transformed into ordinary differential equations before being solved numerically by a finite-difference method. The effects of the unsteadiness parameter, material parameter and Prandtl number on the heat transfer characteristics are studied. It is found that the heat transfer rate at the surface is higher for micropolar fluids with unsteadiness parameter compared to Newtonian fluids.
