The effect of viscous dissipation and heat absorption on a steady two-dimensional natural convection laminar flow of viscous incompressible fluid with uniform surface temperature along a vertical wavy surface has been investigated. Using the appropriate variables; the basic equations are transformed to convenient form and then solved numerically employing very efficient method, namely Keller-Box method (KBM). Numerical results are presented by the shearing stress in terms of the local skin-friction coefficient; the rate of heat transfer in terms of local Nusselt number, streamline and isotherms, respectively for a wide range of the viscous dissipation parameter N and heat absorption parameter Q. Increasing Q and lessening N cause the enhancement of heat transfer rate.
