Therefore, knowledge of the velocity distribution near a solid. estimated the effect of wall conduction on natural convection flow of micropolar fluids along a flat plate. Helmy [7] discussed the state space approach to unsteady free convection flow of a micropolar fluid. Chang [8] approached numerically the simulation of the natural convection plume about a line heat source in micropolar fluid.
