A method is presented for calculating the conductive heat transfer through gases contained between two concentric cylinders. The method of Lees and Liu is extended to include incomplete thermal accommodation at the inner cylindrical surface, and a comparison is made between the two methods. These results are then compared to those of the low pressure and temperature jump methods. On the basis of this analysis, limits are obtained for the free-molecule, transition, temperature jump, and continuum regimes.
