The effects of the presence of an isotropic solid matrix and radiation on the forced convection boundary layer past a continuously moving flat plate is studied theoretically. The transformed nondimensional partial differential equations are solved numerically for some values of the governing parameters using the local nonsimilarity method. The effects of the governing parameters on both flow and heat transfer characteristics are graphed and tabulated. An interesting result of the analysis is that as the value of the radiation parameter k0 increases, a decrease in the thermal radiation’s effect occurs.
