The problem of turbulent free convection heat transfer from curved surfaces to drag-reducing fluids has been investigated using the Nakayama-Koyama solution methodology. The surface wall temperature is allowed to vary in the streamwise direction in an arbitrary fashion and calculations are carried out for the turbulent free convection about the horizontal circular cylinder and the sphere for the sake of illustration.
