In the present investigation the boundary layer steady flow and heat transfer of a viscous incompressible fluid due to a stretching porous sheet in presence of heat source are studied. The equations of motion and heat transfer are reduced to non-linear ordinary differential equations and the exact solutions are obtained in the form of confluent hypergeometric function (Kummer’s Function) for prescribed heat flux, when the wall is at prescribed second order power law heat flux or the prescribed heat flux at the stretching porous wall varies as the square of the distance from the origin. The effects of the various parameters entering into the problem on the temperature distribution and recovery temperature are discussed.
