The paper reports the results of an experimental investigation which was intended to clarify the present uncertain position with regard to the distributions of mean temperature and mean velocity in a turbulent natural-convection boundary layer. Data reported for the turbulent boundary layer for Grashof numbers between 1010 and 1011 include local heat transfer coefficients as well as temperatures and velocities. Local heat transfer coefficients and temperature distributions are also reported for the laminar and transitional boundary-layer regions. Results are compared with other experimental data and with theoretical predictions.
