Abstract: The temperature fields of rotating laminar flows over a flat surface are investigated. Dissipation is considered, whereas free convection effects are neglected. The calculation is based on the knowledge of the flow fields, which have been studied in previous papers by the authors. In these papers first order approximations reduce the Navier-Stokes equations to ordinary differential equations. The basic ideas of this method are applied to the energy equation. In the special case of negligible dissipation the heat transfer of von Kármán type flows can be compared with existing experimental data. The agreement is satisfactory.
