The Hansen–Morse model of the linearized Wang Chang–Uhlenbeck equation is used to study the thermal transpiration and mechanocaloric effects for rarefied polyatomic gases in a cylindrical annulus, where boundary conditions are characterized by diffuse reflection. Phenomenological coefficients at all degrees of rarefaction are reported for physical parameters that represent helium, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and air. Comparisons with isothermal flow data are given.
