## Abstract

This paper studies the effect of periodical gravity modulation, or g-jitter induced mixed convection, on the flow and heat transfer characteristics associated with a stretching vertical surface in abviscous and incompressible fluid. The velocity and temperature of the sheet are assumed to vary linearly with x, where x is the distance along the sheet. It is assumed that the gravity vector modulation is given by g*(t)=go [1+Îµ cos(Ï€Ï‰t)]k, and the resulting non-similar boundary layer equations are solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference scheme. The effects of the amplitude of modulation, frequency of the single-harmonic component of oscillation, mixed convection parameter and Prandtl number on the skin friction and Nusselt number are discussed in detail
