A reference temperature method was developed by which heat transfer to fluids in the supercritical region under variable property conditions in laminar free convection on a vertical flat plate can be readily evaluated. Based on this method three generalized plots for Refrigerant-114, water, and carbon dioxide were developed. The results obtained with the reference temperature scheme showed good agreement with the existing experimental data and theoretical results for these three variable property fluids.
