ABSTRACT

Natural convection boundary layer flow from a flat plate of arbitrary inclination embedded in a porous medium of a rotating environment with finite dimensions has been studied. The growth of a boundary layer thickness except the point of separation is assumed to be constant to exhibits of similarity solution. To examine the velocity of the boundary layer flow, the angle of attack plays an important role in preventing back flow. The influence of a Darcy number exhibits the behavior of primary and secondary flows. The bulk temperature of a porous medium flow has become of physical significance to a moving boundary layer flow.
