• FORCED CONVECTIVE HEAT FLOW OF A VISCOUS LIQUID IN A POROUS MEDIUM OVER A FIXED HORIZONTAL IMPERMEABLE PLATE FOR DIFFERENT DEPTHS OF THE CHANNEL WITH A CONSTANT HEAT SOURCE DISTRIBUTED UNIFORMLY IN THE FLOW REGION

K. MOINUDDIN*

Abstract


In this paper the author deals with steady flow of a viscous fluid of finite depth in a porous medium over a fixed horizontal, impermeable bottom with a uniformly distributed constant heat source in the flow region. Momentum and Energy equations are solved analytically when the temperatures on the fixed bottom and on the free surface are prescribed. Velocity, Mean velocity, Temperature, Mean Temperature, Mean Mixed Temperature in the flow region and the heat transfer rate on the boundaries have been obtained. The cases of small depth (shallow fluid) and large depth (deep fluid) are also discussed. The results are illustrated graphically.
