Abstract : Governing equations are formulated for laminar compressible similar boundary layers with heat transfer, adverse pressure gradient, and constant cross flow. These equations are expressed in finite difference form and solved numerically. Solutions are found for attached and separated flows in adverse pressure gradients for nine combinations of cross flow and heat transfer. The purpose of these solutions is to provide understanding of how cross flow alters the two-dimensional similar results. Solutions are presented in the form of temperature profiles, main flow and cross flow velocity profiles, and global quantities; wall velocity and temperature gradients, displacement thickness, momentum thicknesses, and form factor.
