The effects of hydrodynamic and thermal slip on heat transfer in a thermally developing, steady, laminar Couette flow are investigated. Fluid temperature at the inlet to a parallel plate channel is prescribed, as various combinations of isothermal and adiabatic boundary conditions are along its surfaces. Analytical expressions incorporating arbitrary slip are developed for temperature profiles, and developing and fully developed for Nusselt numbers. The results are relevant to liquid and gas flows in the presence of apparent and molecular slip, respectively.
