A solution is presented for fully developed laminar heat transfer in a circular tube with arbitrary circumferential heat flux. Examples included indicate that the influence of circumferential heat-flux variation on wall temperatures can be quite significant and provide some insight into the nature of the effects. The analysis allows calculation of wall temperatures for any arbitrary peripheral heat-flux variation for fully developed laminar flow under the restriction of constant axial heat input.
