The effect of foreign coolant injection at the wall on the temperature distribution of a laminar flow of a fluid with variable transport and thermodynamic properties in a porous-wall pipe has been investigated. The velocity components, mass concentration, and temperature distribution were obtained by the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, the diffusion equation, and the energy equation. A perturbation method was used to solve the first equations for small flows through the porous wall, and the eigenvalues in the latter two equations were calculated with the aid of the CDC 1604 computer. The results from this investigation depict the significant differences in both velocity distribution and temperature distribution between the present case of hydrogen coolant and the case of air coolant [1]. The results also show that the heat transfer coefficient at the wall in the present case is considerably smaller than the case of air-coolant injection.
