In this article we present an experimental and numerical study of the behavior of the boundary layer type viscous flow in the presence of the thermal effect. The flow was held in a three-dimensional field with a uniform infinite velocity in the case of an adiabatic wall with heat input. The presented experimental work was performed in the Thermal Laboratory (LET) of the Prime Institute of Poitiers (France). It describes the analysis of a turbulent boundary layer created in a wind tunnel on the surface of a flat plate covered with epoxy resin. An HP 6012A power supply system was used to provide circulating heat flux to heat the flat plate to 80°C by the Joule effect. The numerical result shows a clear difference in the evolution of the thermal boundary layer between the three temperatures of the wall.
