Based on a simple enthalpy thickness approach, results are presented for laminar and turbulent heat transfer to a partially porous, nonisothermal flat plate. The model employed accounts for thermodynamic coupling between the boundary layer and porous wall heat transfer problems, and is expanded to include consideration of axial heat conduction along the wall. The results indicate that partial injection can be expected to produce a highly nonisothermal surface, which in turn causes the external Stanton number distribution to differ markedly from that predicted previously for assumed isothermal wall conditions. The boundary layer prediction technique is shown to be in reasonably good agreement with recent analytical and experimental results reported in the literature.
