The analysis of steady laminar forced convection boundary layer of power-law non-Newtonian fluids on a continuously moving cylinder with the surface maintained at a uniform temperature or uniform heat flux is presented. Of interest were the effects of power-law viscosity index, transverse curvature, generalized Prandtl number and streamwise coordinate on the local Nusselt number as well as on the velocity and temperature profiles. The two thermal boundary conditions yield quite similar results. Comparison of the calculated results with available series expansion solutions for a Newtonian fluid shows a very good performance of the present numerical procedure.
