The temperature distribution and heat transfer coefficient are investigated in forced convection with Newtonian fluids in pressure gradient driven hydrodynamically and thermally fully developed steady laminar flow in transversally corrugated pipes. The governing equations are solved by means of the epitrochoid conformal mapping and exact analytical solutions are derived for the velocity and temperature fields without viscous dissipation. The effect of the corrugations and the number of waves on the friction factor, the temperature distribution and the heat transfer enhancement is discussed.
