Free laminar convection along a vertical plate dissipating a uniform heat flux density
Abstract
The problem of free laminar convection with a uniform heat flux distribution over the surface of a vertical plate is analyzed. An approximate solution is obtained for gases with variable physical properties. A relation defining the lower bound of Grashof numbers at which classical solutions are still valid is derived.
