A schematic of fluid flow and convective heat transfer over a free rotating disk in infinite ambience is depicted in Fig. 3.1. Velocity and temperature profiles computed numerically based on a solution of the self-similar system of Eqs. (2.37), (2.38), (2.39), (2.40) and (2.41) for β=0, N=0 with the help of the MathCAD software are presented in Fig. 3.2.
