SINOPSIS

Additional analytical solutions are given for the problem of steady free convection boundary layer over a vertical flat plate embedded in a fluid-saturated porous medium. Both the cases of variable surface temperature (VST) and variable surface heat flux (VHF) are considered. The resulting ordinary differential equations are solved analytically and the flow and heat transfer characteristics are discussed. The obtained results for the heat transfer at the plate and, respectively, for the surface temperature are compared with those of Na and Pop [1]. The agreement is very good especially at large distances from the leading edge of the plate.
