This paper describes a numerical calculation of the local Nusselt number for laminar flow in a tube with axial conduction, radial convection, and simultaneously developing thermal and velocity profiles. The results are given for a constant heat flux at the wall and Prandtl numbers from 0.005 to 0.03 with a Pr = 0.7 used to compare with Kays solution.
