The conjugate mixed convection and conduction transport that arises due to the continuous movement of a heated plate has been numerically investigated. The temperature distribution in the solid, as well as in the flow, along with the associated velocity field, need to be studied in detail. A numerical study is carried out, assuming a two-dimensional, transient circumstance. The governing elliptic equations are solved, employing finite difference techniques. The transient effects in heat transfer from the plate are studied for the heated plate moving horizontally as well as vertically. The steady state results are obtained for various values of the governing dimensionless parameters, such as the ratio of the thermal conductivity of the fluid Kr to that of the material Ks, the Péclet number Pe, Prandtl number Pr, Grashof number Gr, and Reynolds number Re.
