For steady-state conditions, the conjugate heat transfer process for a developing laminar boundary-layer flow over a heated plate is considered. Boundary conditions for the heated plate are set as Neumann, i.e., constant heat flux for the bottom of the plate, and as convective heat transfer for the top, with the interface temperature obtained using Chebyshev polynomial approximations. Computation of the derived equations is by the computer algebra system, Mathematica.
