This write-up presents a Closure to “Discussion of ‘Mixed Convection From a Convectively Heated Vertical Plate to a Fluid With Internal Heat Generation,’” Journal of Heat Transfer, 2011, Vol. 33, 122501 and upholds the mathematical correctness of the published article.

The argument of discussion by “Asterios Pantokratoras” with respect to the correctness of the published paper [1] is totally unfounded and misleading. First, it appears that “Asterios Pantokratoras” did not understand the paper or have any idea about the convectively heated boundary layer problem with a prescribed spatially decaying exponential internal heat generation that were discussed in the paper by Makinde and Aziz [1]. The argument of Asterios Pantokratoras is mathematically erroneous, incorrect, and inaccurate with respect to the model problem described in the paper. We emphasize that the paper [1] is correct both in formulation, analysis, solution,...
