Abstract

The interaction of a buoyancy induced mixed convection flow and a free stream impinging at some angle of incidence on a vertical flat plate with a prescribed surface heat flux is studied in this paper. The similarity equations are numerically solved for some values of the governing parameters. It is found that the buoyancy force and non-orthogonal mechanisms act to either reinforce or oppose one another. The stagnation point (separation point) is shifted at the left or at the right of the origin and it depends upon the balance between obliqueness and thermal effects
