Numerical solutions of the laminar-flow equations in differential form are presented for gas flows through cooled tubes. For nearly isothermal flow there is good agreement with available experimental data, as is also found for the case of a large amount of wall cooling. This correspondence along with a check on the satisfaction of the global momentum and energy constraints allowed an appraisal of the effect of wall cooling on flow through tubes. In general, the effect of wall cooling was to decrease the wall friction and the change in pressure along tubes, but the average heat-transfer coefficient did not vary much.
