ABSTRACT
An unsteady boundary layer flow of viscous incompressible fluid over a stretching plate has been considered to solve heat flow problem with variable thermal conductivity. First, using similarity transformation, the velocity components have been obtained, and then the heat flow problem has been attempted in the following two ways: 1) prescribed stretching surface temperature (PST), and 2) prescribed stretching surface heat flux (PHF) Flow and temperature fields have been analyzed through graphs. The expressions for skin friction and coefficient of convective heat transfer Nusselt number in PST and PHF cases have been derived.
