Abstract : The effect of constant heat sources on fully developed free convection flow of a viscous fluid in a porous channel oriented in the direction of the body force has been studied when the walls are maintained at constant temperatures. It has been found that both the velocity and temperature depend on the heat source parameter alpha and the dimensional group Q representing the free convection effects.
