The results of an extensive experimental investigation of heat transfer to a turbulent incompressible boundary layer from a nonisothermal flat plate are summarized. Data presented extend the range of low-Mach-number confirmation of the von Karman analogy to Reynolds numbers of 4 × 106 for an isothermal plate. Data for a step wall-temperature distribution confirm experimentally the preferable expression for this important superposition kernel case. Data from a variety of other examples confirm the use of the superposition theories to predict heat transfer from nonisothermal surfaces.
