RÉSUMÉ

Natural convection laminar flow of a viscous incompressible fluid along a uniformly heated vertical wavy surface with temperature dependent viscosity and thermal conductivity has been investigated. We consider the boundary layer regime when the Grashof number Gr is large. Using the appropriate transformation variables, the basic governing equations are first transformed to non-similar boundary layer form and then solved numerically employing the implicit finite difference method together with Keller-box scheme. The numerical results are presented in terms of the streamlines and isotherms as well as the fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics, namely, the local skin-friction coefficient and the local Nusselt number for a wide range of values of the viscosity and thermal conductivity variation parameter, surface waviness and the Prandtl number.
