Heat transfer measurements are made in the separated, reattached, and redeveloped regions of the two-dimensional air flow on a flat plate with blunt leading edge. The flow reattachment occurs at about four plate thicknesses downstream from the leading edge and the heat transfer coefficient becomes maximum at that point and this is independent of the Reynolds number which ranged from 2720 to 17900 in this investigation. The heat transfer coefficient is found to increase sharply near the leading edge. The development of flow is shown through the measurements of the velocity and temperature in the separated, reattached, and redeveloped regions.
