Abstract

This communication investigates the effect of free convection on the heat transfer and the flow through a highly porous medium bounded by two vertical parallel porous plates. It is assume that free stream velocity oscillates in times about a constant mean. Assuming periodic temperature at the moving plate, the approximate solutions for velocity field, emperature field, skin-friction and the rate of heat transfer are obtained and discussed with the help of graphs and tables.
