A simple procedure is developed for approximate calculations of wall heat-transfer rates in transpired boundary layers. Applications of this procedure are illustrated by various examples of incompressible, laminar flows in the limits of large and small Prandtl numbers. A distinguished limit of large Prandtl number and small mass-transfer rate is easily identified, and some limiting solutions are presented for the porous-plate configuration. Calculations for the cases with small Prandtl numbers explicitly demonstrate the usefulness of the method in studying transient heat-conduction problems. The remarkable combination of accuracy and simplicity represents the principal merit of the method.
