Abstract

This paper considers the steady mixed convection boundary layer flow of a viscous and incompressible fluid near the stagnantion-point on a vertical surface with the slip effect at the boundary.The temperature of the sheet and the velocity of the external flow are assumed to vary lineally with the distance from the stagnation-point. The governing parameters are analyzed and discussed. Both assisting and opposing flows are considered. The results indicate that for the opposing flow, the dual solutions exists in a certain range of the buoyancy parameter, while for the assisting flow, the solution is unique. In general, the velocity slip increases the heat transfer rate at the surface, while the thermal slip decreases it.
