A new compact analytical model is developed to predict transient heat convection from isoflux vertical plates into a constant property surrounding region. The proposed model is based on a blending of the two asymptotes corresponding to transient diffusion into a half-space and the steady-state convection heat transfer from an isoflux vertical plate. A compact relation for transient and steady-state average Nusselt numbers is proposed. The proposed model is successfully verified with existing experimental data of Goldstein and Eckert. The maximum difference between the proposed compact analytical model and the experimental data is less than 6%.
