The purpose of the present investigation is to determine numerical results in respect of the heat transfer to the wall of a duct which has an elliptic cross section and through which a hot viscous fluid flows with a steady established laminar motion. The wall of the channel is at a constant temperature which is less than that of the entering fluid. Results for several cross-sectional eccentricities are presented and correlated.
