The paper explores a numerical method for the solution of strongly coupled equations governing nonsimilar flows in laminar boundary layers. The analysis deals specifically with nonsimilar free convection from a vertical plate suspended in air, the nonsimilarity of the flow being generated by step discontinuities in surface temperatures. Results presented herein compare favorably with and form a theoretical basis for the experiments of Schetz and Eichhorn.
