Average heat transfer coefficients during forced convection air flow over inclined and yawed rectangular plates have been experimentally determined. Tripping wires at the edges ensured that a turbulent boundary layer prevailed over the plates. The experiments were carried out for a constant surface temperature and covered two plates of different aspect ratios, angles of attack from 0 to 45 deg, angles of yaw from 0 to 30 deg, and Reynolds numbers from 2 times; 104 to 3.5 times; 105. The results show that the average heat transfer coefficient is essentially insensitive to the aspect ratio and angle of yaw. However, it is a function of Reynolds number and the angle of attack. Correlation equations for various angles of attack are suggested.
