Heat Transfer in the Turbulent Incompressible Boundary LayerHeat-transfer rates, velocity profiles, and temperature profiles for the turbulent incompressible flow of air over a flat plate with a constant surface temperature have been measured at Reynolds numbers up to 3.5 x lO(exp 6). The turbulent heat-transfer measurements agree well with the von Karman analogy, and the velocity profiles agree with the data of previous investigators. The temperature profiles are similar to the velocity profiles, both being adequately described by power formulas.
