A model for the calculation of convective heat transfer
to surfaces is presented. The model is designed to be
used in conjunction with the large eddy simulation fire
dynamics model developed at The National Institute of
Standards and Technology. It is based on the approximate
solution of the three-dimensional time dependent laminar
boundary layer equations together with self-consistent
boundary conditions. The approach involves the use of a
suitable coordinate transformation to account for
variable property effects in the boundary layer. A brief
derivation of the required transformation is included as
it does not seem to be in the standard heat transfer and
