Numerical solutions are described for the unsteady thermal boundary layer in incompressible laminar flow over a semi-infinite flat plate set impulsively into motion, with the simultaneous imposition of a constant temperature difference between the plate and the fluid. Results are presented for several Prandtl numbers.
