Abstract

The present paper presents a numerical study of heat transfer of a micropolar boundary layer flow near a stagnation point on a moving wall. The governing differential equations are solved numerically and the temperature profiles are shown graphically for different values of material parameters and wall velocity. The heat transfer rate has been obtained for both the isothermal and the adiabatic case. It is concluded that the temperature in the boundary layer increases for the micropolar flows, as compared to the Newtonian flows.
