An analysis of a thermal flowmeter is presented incorporating the normally neglected effect of axial conduction along the tube. It is assumed that heat flow from the tube to the fluid is proportional to the temperature difference between the tube wall and the bulk temperature of the fluid. The solution is given in analytical form, and a numerical example is included.
