Numerical results are presented for free convection boundary layers over horizontal cylinders of elliptic cross section when the major axis is both horizontal and vertical and when the cylinder is isothermal and has constant heat flux. The particular case of a circular cylinder is considered and these results are compared with the various series expansions suggested for solving the equations.
