The solution of heat-transfer problems has become vital for many aeronautical applications. The shapes of objects to be cooled can often be approximated by cylinders of various cross sections with flow normal to the axis as, for instance, heat transfer on gas-turbine blades and on airfoils heated for deicing purposes.
