Experimental evaluation of overall convection heat transfer coefficient of a rectangular bar in the vicinity of a flat plate is investigated. A quad of rectangular shape and later a quad with the cause of optimal heat transfer are placed at the near and the inside of a turbulent boundary layer over a flat plate. The overall convection heat transfer coefficient of the flat plate are measured and compared to the case similar to a single flat plate. A low speed wind tunnel is employed to maintain main flow field at the requested speed and special electrical circuit is prepared to provide heat and measure heat losses from the flat plate. Conclusion is made that when the obstacle closes to the flat plate, the total convective heat transfer coefficient increases to a maximum and then reduces again by moving towards the plate. Distance from the flat in which the maximum heat transfer coefficient occurs is reported.
