The flow and heat transfer about a rotating isothermal disk are reexamined to include the effects of compressibility and property variations. If viscous dissipation is neglected, the compressible problem is correlated to the incompressible problem by assuming linear variations of viscosity and thermal conductivity with temperatures.
