The similarity solution of inclined wall plume is obtained analytically. The mathematical model used herein consists of the continuity equation of flow, the momentum balance equation in the flow direction, the diffusion equation of concentration, the equation of kinetic energy of turbulence and the equation of viscous dissipation rate of turbulence. It is shown that this set of equations has the similarity solution which can be solved numerically for each angle of the inclined wall. This numerical model is applied to the wide range of the slope angle, which includes the vertical wall plume as the special case and the nearly horizontal wall plume. The velocity and concentration profiles of the inclined wall plume are explained well by the similarity solutions.
