### Abstract

The two-dimensional inviscid incompressible flow at high Reynolds number over an isothermally heated flat semi-infinite plate with a square leading edge is simulated numerically using a discrete-vortex model. Both the instantaneous and mean thermal fields are predicted using an alternating direction implicit finite difference approximation of the energy equation. The mean local heat transfer rate is found to be a global maximum near the point of mean reattachment, in line with observation.
