Here DH is the hydraulic diameter (DH = 2 x (2h) = 4h for a channel of total width 2h), and AT is the temperature difference between the wall and the bulk of the fluid. Also, Nu(Kn = 0) = 8.235 is the value corresponding to no-slip conditions. The above equation is based on Maxwell’s first-order slip condition and neglects the effect of thermal creep.

Next, we analyze the combined effects of convection and thermal creep. The momentum equation subject to slip boundary conditions with a specified tangential temperature variation (see equation (2.19)) can be solved analytically. The rarefaction effects on momentum transfer can be investigated either by analyzing the volumetric flowrate increase in a pressure-driven channel or by analyzing the change in the skin friction coefficient for a fixed volumetric flowrate, under an appropriately specified pressure gradient. The nondimensional velocity distribution in a channel extending from y = —h to y = h is obtained as

where denotes the tangential temperature variation along the channel surface, and we defined Kn = X/h, with h the half-channel width. Given this parabolic velocity profile we obtain the coefficient of high-order boundary condition from equation (2.39) to be b =X, Correspondingly, the volumetric flowrate Q through the channel, in nondimensional form, becomes
