Heat transfer analysis of unsteady boundary layer flow by homotopy analysis method. (English) Zbl 1221.76152
Summary: We aim to present complete analytic solution to the unsteady heat transfer flow of an incompressible viscous fluid over a permeable plane wall. The flow is started due to an impulsively stretching porous plate. Homotopy analysis method (HAM) has been used to get accurate and complete analytic solution. The solution is uniformly valid for all time $\tau \in [0, \infty $) throughout the spatial domain $\eta \in [0, \infty $). The accuracy of the present results is shown by giving a comparison between the present results and the results already present in the literature. This comparison proves the validity and accuracy of our present results. Finally, the effects of different parameters on temperature distribution are discussed through graphs.
