Through extensive study on hydrodynamics and heat transfer, calculation correlations of heat transfer for laminar free/forced mixed convection on a vertical flat plate is obtained. It contains the following three research investigations: (i) local-similarity analysis and transformation based on our developed new similarity analysis method replacing the traditional Falkner-Skan type transformation; (ii) New governing local-similarity mathematical model, which is first applied in study of laminar free/forced mixed convection. It is more conveniently obtained and applied compared with that based on the Falkner-Skan type transformation for investigation of free/forced mixed convection; and (iii) New correlations on heat transfer of laminar free/forced mixed convection. They have wide coverage of Prandtl number and mixed convection parameter, and are suitable for all gases and important liquids including water for laminar free/forced mixed convection. The reported heat transfer correlations are so reliably because they are produced based on combination of theoretical analysis equations with the correlations formulated rigorously according to system of groups on accurate numerical solutions.
