The energy equation for mechanically fully developed turbulent flow between parallel plates is numerically solved taking into account the term of streamwise heat conduction. Solutions are presented for Re = 7060 and 73620, and for Pr ranging from 0.001 to 0.1. Generally the influence of the streamwise molecular conduction results in a remarkable decrease of the Nusselt number in the thermal inlet.
