In Chap.  4, the complete governing partial differential equations of laminar mixed convection were transformed equivalently to the corresponding similarity governing partial differential ones, where the Boussinesq approximation is considered. On this basis, in this Chapter, the similarity governing partial differential equations with the boundary conditions will be solved in the wide range of averages Prandtl number and local mixed convection parameter with consideration of Boussinesq approximation. Moreover, the velocity fields and Skin-friction coefficient will be analyzed and calculated numerically.
