By comparing with the exact similarity solution for the mixed convection plume of the point source, the limitation of the Oseen boundary layer solution is established. Superposition principles are given and applied to the cases of the vertical and the horizontal finite heated wire. Three-dimensional thermal and velocity fields are determined.
