RESUMO

An investigation has been carried out to discuss the effects of variable viscosity and thermal stratification in the presence of internal heat generation on free convection flow along a nonisothermal vertical plate. The plate is semi-infinite and embedded in a porous medium which is saturated with a non-Newtonian power-law fluid. The governing equations of continuity, momentum, and energy are transformed into nonlinear ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The Runge−Kutta−Gill method and shooting technique are employed to solve the resulting equations. For the nonisothermal plate, the heat transfer rate increases as θc → 0 for liquids, whereas it decreases for gases as θc → 0 due to the thermal stratification in the presence of internal heat generation. The velocity decreases near the plate and increases away from the plate as θc → 0 for gases. In the case of liquids, the result is reversed. The obtained results are depicted graphically for different parameters involved.
