Abstract

Numerical solutions for the velocity and temperature fields have been obtained to determine fully developed friction factors and Nusselt numbers. The friction factor increases markedly as a function of the Reynolds number Rew based on the velocity of the moving wall. The effect of Rew on the Nusselt number depends on the Prandtl number. At higher Prandtl numbers, there is a significant increase in the Nusselt number with Rew. For intermediate Prandtl numbers, the variation of the Nusselt number with Rew is rather small.
