A mathematical method is described for the analytical solution of the convective heat transfer rates from a rotating isothermal and porous disk in a uniform flow field. By applying the appropriate velocity component of the fluid in the energy equation, a similarity solution was derived showing an increase in the rates of heat transfer with increasing rotational Reynolds number and with decreasing flow Reynolds number. Effects of natural convection and viscous dissipation were assumed negligible.
