J Appl Mech Eng 4: 153. Abstract In this study, highly accurate analytical methods, Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM), is applied for predicting the temperature distribution in a porous fin with temperature dependent internal heat generation. The heat transfer through porous media is simulated using passage velocity from

It has been attempted to show the capabilities and wide-range applications of the Homotopy Analysis Method in comparison with a type of numerical analysis as Boundary Value Problem (BVP) in solving this problem. The results show that the HAM is an attractive method in solving this problem.
