Heat Transfer Calculation

    I would like to do a first principles heat transfer calculation for an ideal, monoatomic gas at entry temperature T, and pressure P flowing at velocity v (v is small, so flow is laminar) through a stainless steel tube at some uniform temperature T' > T.

    But if someone has done this calculation before, and I find it hard to believe that no one has, I'd rather just copy off them. :redface:

    After some moderate searching through Mass & Heat Transfer books, I haven't found anything that doesn't use some literature value of the heat transfer coefficient, h. Where can I find a more fundamental calculation than that ? I will settle for an ab-initio calculation at v=0.
