Heat transfer of a continuous, stretching surface with suction or blowing. (English) Zbl 0652.76062

Summary: An analysis has been carried out to determine the heat transfer occurring in the laminar boundary layer on a linearly stretching, continuous surface subject to suction or blowing. Two cases are considered: the sheet with prescribed wall temperature and heat flux. The results are expressed in terms of Kummer’s functions. For specified conditions, the solutions reduced to the published results. Additionally, the results of an impermeable stretching plate with variable wall heat flux are also obtained. Finally, the effects of Prandtl numbers, suction or blowing parameter, temperature parameter, and heat flux parameter on the temperature distribution are discussed in detail.
