Cooling of a stretching sheet in non-Newtonian flow

  • B. K. Dutta
Brief Reports


An analytical solution has been developed for the temperature distribution in a stretching sheet undergoing cooling in a non-Newtonian viscoelastic fluid. A solution has also been obtained for the temperature field in the boundary layer. Sufficient conditions for convergence of the solutions have been established.
