Abstract : The moment equations of Ikenberry and Truesdell (J. Rat. Mech. and Anal., 5:1 Ipp. 1-54 II pp. 55-128, 1956) are solved for the steady state plane Couette flow with first order slip in the boundary conditions. The results are com(over) pared with Millikan's solution of the NavierStokes equations when both plates have the same temperature. The analytic form of the general solution is the same as Grad's solution of his 13 Moment equations. When the plates have different temperatures the application of the first order velocity slip and temperature jump at the plates is more difficult and the solution must be found by a numerical iteration.
