The thermal boundary layer of a non-fourier power-law fluid on a plate with a variable surface temperature

  • S. L. Lur'e


The equation for the thermal boundary layer of a non-Fourier powerlaw fluid on a flat plate with an exponential distribution of surface temperature is reduced to an ordinary equation and solved by the method of finite differences. The effect of the exponent γ on the temperature profile and on the heat-transfer coefficient is determined. It is demonstrated that the asymptotic solutions of the equation for large σ are nearly exact.
