# SIMILARITY METHOD FOR BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW OF A NON-NEWTONIAN VISCOUS FLUID AT A CONVECTIVELY HEATED SURFACE

## Main Article Content

## Abstract

The similarity method is presented for the determination of the velocity and the temperature distribution in the boundary layer next to a horizontal moving surface heated convectively from below. The basic partial differential equations are transformed to a system of ordinary differential equations subjected to boundary conditions.
