The paper deals with a steady coupled dissipative layer, called Marangoni mixed convection boundary layer, which can be formed along the interface of two immiscible fluids, in surface driven flows. The mixed convection boundary layer is generated when besides the Marangoni effects there are also buoyancy effects due to gravity and external pressure gradient effects. We shall use a model proposed by Golia and Viviani (L’ Aerotecnica missili e Spazio 64 (1985) 29–35, Meccanica 21 (1986) 200–204) wherein the Marangoni coupling condition has been included into the boundary conditions at the interface. The similarity equations are first determined, and the pertinent equations are solved numerically for some values of the governing parameters and the features of the flow and temperature fields as well as the interface velocity and heat transfer at the interface are analysed and discussed.
