Abstract

An analytical study has been made to determine the heat transfer characteristics of a stagnation point flow in which there are temperature-dependent heat sources or sinks. Results have been obtained for both strong and weak sources or sinks for a Prandtl number of 0.7. An analytical method, applicable to all Prandtl numbers, was utilized which circumvented the need for extensive numerical solutions and which, at the same time, provided a closed-form representation for the heat transfer. A few numerical solutions were carried out to verify the method.
