The heat transfer characteristics of a viscous liquid film flow over an unsteady stretching sheet subject to variable heat flux are investigated numerically. The effect of thermal radiation applying to an optically thick medium is also considered. The governing boundary layer equations are transformed into a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations using an efficient fifth-order step-adapted Runge–Kutta integration scheme together with Newton–Raphson method. The dimensionless temperature is plotted for various governing parameters; say, unsteadiness parameter, effective Prandtl number, distance index, as well as time index. It is found that the heat transfer aspects are strongly influenced by the relevant parameters.
