Simple and familiar perturbation parameters have been employed in applying the corrected Merk series of Chao and Fagbenle to the laminar mixed convection flow over two dimensional or axisymmetric bodies. The governing ordinary differential equations for the first five sets of the resulting universal functions for the velocity and temperature have been given. Numerical solutions were subsequently obtained and the relevant universal functions tabulated with respect to the ‘wedge parameter’ for mixed convection two dimensional flows and with respect to both the ‘wedge parameter’ and ‘shape parameter’ for the axisymmetric case. Using the wall derivatives of these universal functions, friction and heat transfer in mixed convection flows over two dimensional or axisymmetric bodies have been obtained and used in evaluation of skin friction and surface heat transfer.
