The results of a numerical investigation of internal laminar heat transfer to a gas with temperature-dependent properties are reported. In this investigation the authors obtained numerical solutions to the coupled partial differential equations of continuity, energy, momentum, and integral continuity describing the two-dimensional flow of perfect gas between heated parallel plates. A sequence of numerical solutions was obtained for the case of constant wall heat flux with a fully developed velocity profile at the start of the heated section and pure forced convection. The results may be summarized by
where the subscript “m” refers to properties evaluated at the local mixed-mean (or bulk) temperature.
