A solution of the Navier-Stokes equation for source and sink flows of a viscous, heat-conducting, compressible fluid is given for the case of constant total flow energy. For the satisfaction of the condition of constant total flow energy, a certain Prandtl number is required. Aside from the more obvious requirement, the selection of a certain ratio of the first and second viscosity coefficient is necessary. The nature of the general solutions for flow with arbitrary Prandtl number and with heat addition is discussed.
