An analytical study is performed to examine the effects of temperature-dependent heat source on free-convective flow of non-Newtonian fluid (Walters's liquidB′). The expression for the velocity field has been obtained by the Laplace transform technique. The influence of the various parameter entering into the problem is extensively discussed.
