Abstract

An analysis of heat transfer in the flow of a viscous, in-compressible fluid along an infinite porous plate is presented when the plate is subjected to a transverse sinusoidal suction. The flow field becomes three-dimensional due to this type of suction velocity. Expressions for the flow and temperature fields are obtained by series expansion method. It is found during the course of discussion that due to more addition of viscous dissipative heat the temperature in the boundary layer increases or decreases accordingly as E> 0 or E<0.
