Abstract: In this paper, the mathematical modelling of free convection boundary layer flow over a permeable horizontal flat plate embedded in a porous medium under mixed thermal boundary conditions and radiation effects, is considered. The transformed boundary layer equations are solved numerically using the shooting method. Numerical solutions are obtained for the wall temperature, the heat transfer coefficient, as well as the velocity and temperature profiles. The features of the flow and heat transfer characteristics for different values of the radiation parameter , the mixed thermal boundary condition parameter and the suction or injection parameter are analyzed and discussed.
Keywords: Free convection; permeable horizontal flat plate; porous medium, mixed thermal boundary conditions; radiation.
