Abstract: The second Appell's hypergeometric function $ F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y)$ has a Mellin convolution integral representation in the region $ \Re(x+y)<1$ and $ a>0$. We apply a recently introduced asymptotic method for Mellin convolution integrals to derive three asymptotic expansions of $ F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y)$ in decreasing powers of $ x$ and $ y$ with $ x/y$ bounded. For certain values of the real parameters $ a$, $ b$, $ b'$, $ c$ and $ c'$, two of these expansions involve logarithmic terms in the asymptotic variables $ x$ and $ y$. Some coefficients of these expansions are given in terms of the Gauss hypergeometric function $ {}_3F_2$ and its derivatives.
