**Abstract**

Experimental study of mixed free and forced convection heat transfer from a vertical heated cylinder placed in a crossflow is studied for Reynolds number from 1.1×10^{3} to 3.3×10^{4} and Prandtl number 0.7. The average Nusselt number is calculated and correlated with the Reynolds number. An empirical correlation for predicting the overall heat transfer from the cylinder is developed for this case.
