Heat transfer to supercritical water (at 3400 psia in the pseudocritical region) by stable laminar free convection from an isothermal, vertical flat plate was analytically investigated. The actual variations with temperature of all or some of the thermophysical properties of supercritical water were taken into consideration. Fair agreement was found between the analytical values of this paper and existing experimental data.
