This paper discussses the effect of free-stream turbulence on the constant temperature heat transfer rate from the surface of a two-dimensional rectangular body that is subject to a strongly favorable pressure gradient. Free-stream turbulence levels of 2 to 5 percent enhanced the heat transfer by 48 to 55 percent over predicted laminar values. Free-stream turbulence levels of 10 to 35 percent produced heat transfer results that behaved in some aspects as turbulent predictions, although considerably enhanced in magnitude over the predicted values.
