"An experimental investigation was conducted using a holographic interferometer to detect the temperature variation in a free convection boundary layer about a vertical heated plate. The heated plate was non-isothermal and investigations were conducted for four temperature distributions; the maximum plate temperature ranged from 200F to 493F. Photographs were taken of the fringe patterns and boundary layer thickness measurements, as well as temperature measurements, were made. A theoretical model was constructed by applying the integral method to the energy and momentum equations. The experimental values agree quite well with this model. The advantages of the holographic interferometer over other systems are discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
