The problem considered is the determination of the heat transfer in fully developed turbulent flow of a radiating optically thin gas in a circular tube. The radiation problem is formulated in terms of the Planck mean and the modified Planck mean coefficients and the temperature profiles and Nusselt numbers have been determined. It is shown that the simple constant shear, constant heat flux formulation yields results that are in very good agreement with more complex calculations.
