The unsteady laminar incompressible nonsimilar boundary layer flow over a circular cylinder placed symmetrically inside a channel has been studied when the unsteadiness and nonsimilarity are due to the free stream velocity. The nonlinear partial differential equations with three independent variables have been solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference in combination with the quasilinearization technique. It is found that the channel blockage parameter controls the transfer of heat from the cylinder and delays separation. The skin friction and heat transfer are significantly affected by the free stream velocity distributions.
