This paper considers the problem of viscous dissipation in power-law fluid flow through a tube of circular cross section. The solution to the problem is obtained by a series expansion about the complete eigenfunctions system of a Sturm-Liouville problem. The eigenfunctions and eigenvalues of this Sturm-Liouville problem are obtained by Galerkin’s method. The Graetz problem is also considered. Numerical examples are given for a viscous fluid with unit Brinkman number.
