The steady laminar flow in a porous medium of an incompressible non-Newtonian micropolar fluid impinging on a permeable flat plate with heat transfer is investigated. A numerical solution for the governing nonlinear momentum and energy equations is obtained. The effect of the porosity of the medium and the characteristics of the non-Newtonian fluid on both the flow and heat transfer is presented and discussed.
