Following closely E. Polhausens solution for the laminar temperature field at the flat plate in longitudinal flow, formulas are derived which permit calculation of the velocity and temperature field for variable properties by means of an integral equation and an iteration method based on this equation. Accordingly, the following cases were solved By assuming that only viscosity varies with temperature and that the remaining properties are constant, the velocity and temperature fields were calculated for the Pr numbers 12.5 and 100 viscous fluids at heated and cooled plate conditions.
