...However, since the variations of thermal conductivity (k) and viscosity (#) [and hence Prandtl number (Pr)] with temperature are quite significant, the viscosity and Prandtl number are assumed to vary as an inverse linear function of temperature (T) [ 14], [21 ]: 1 1 #=bl+b2T and P r - - - , (1) Cl + c2T where b l = 53....

...It has long been recognized that the stability of a laminar boundary layer is markedly affected by the heat transfer and, in at least some cases, this phenomenon arises from the change in curvature of the velocity and temperature profiles due to the variation of temperature-dependent fluid properties [14]....

...A similar trend has been observed in the case of constant fluid properties for parallel flow past a flat plate at zero incidence [14] and also for incompressible boundary layer flow over a rotating sphere [9]....
