# Numerical and experimental investigations into the upstream transpiration problem in free convection

TL;DR: In this article, the influence of uniform upstream transpiration on downstream heat transfer at a vertical plate in free convection is investigated numerically and the governing equations in their von Mises form are solved using a simple finite difference scheme forPr=072.

Abstract: The influence of uniform upstream transpiration on downstream heat transfer at a vertical plate in free convection is investigated numerically The governing equations in their von Mises form are solved using a simple finite difference scheme forPr=072, in the blowing parameter range, − 19<Cx<19 Experiments are conducted to verify the numerical predictions for uniform upstream blowing case
