Abstract : An analytical study of two-dimensional viscous compressible flow in a slender channel was made for the case of varying wall temperature. The governing equations were reduced to a set of two coupled ordinary nonlinear differential equations by means of a similarity transformation technique. The velocity and enthalpy profiles were then determined numerically. The channel geometry, pressure, and temperature distributions were solved in closed form. Special case studies for air showed that only the enthalpy profile and pressure distribution were greatly influenced by a variable wall temperature in comparison to solutions obtained for an adiabatic constant wall temperature case.
