Thermal radiation heat transfer is studied in boundary layers on continuous moving surfaces. An analytical study is performed for two-dimensional laminar flow of an absorbing and emitting fluid. Solutions were obtained for limiting conditions of optically thin and thick boundary layers. Comparisons indicate that the radiation flux in these boundary layers is less than that for flow over semi-infinite flat plates for optically thin flows. The radiation contribution becomes more nearly equal as optical thickness increases. The normal velocity induced in the free stream by the wall motion significantly affects the radiation heat transfer.
