The effects of couple stresses in fluids on heat transfer are considered. The energy equation is examined in detail and a boundary-value problem has been solved to indicate the effects on heat transfer. It has been shown that a size-dependent effect comes which is not present in the nonpolar case (couple stresses absent).
