Heat transfer over an unsteady stretching surface with internal heat generation. (English) Zbl 1056.76026

Summary: We study heat transfer over an unsteady stretching surface with internal heat generation or absorption. The governing time-dependent boundary layer equations are solved numerically. The velocity profiles, temperature profiles, the skin friction components on the unsteady stretching surface and the rate of heat transfer are computed and discussed in detail for various values of unsteadiness parameter, Prandtl number and heat source/sink parameter.
