Abstract

Boundary-layer flow and heat transfer of non-Newtonian fluids in porous media are explored analytically. The local Nusselt number for forced and natural convection of non-Newtonian fluids in porous media on an isothermal semi-infinite plate is obtained as a function of the rheological parameters n and Ω. The results show that these parameters have a significant effect on the heat transfer rate and flow behavior.
