The effect of viscous dissipation on the development of the boundary layer flow from a cold vertical surface embedded in a Darcian porous medium is investigated. It is found that the flow evolves gradually from the classical Cheng-Minkowycz form to the recently discovered asymptotic dissipation profile which is a parallel flow.
- Natural convection
- Boundary layer flow
- Asymptotic stability
- Porous materials
