For the case of a large Prandtl number, buoyancy driven flow in an inclined fluid layer, it is shown that all longitudinal-coordinate-independent solutions of the governing equations are obtainable from a knowledge of the existing results for two-dimensional convection in a horizontal layer, heated from below. The rescaling here yields results which compare favorably with those of existing experimental heat transport values.
