The purpose of this work is to determine the nature of the effect of the intensity of slipping the medium on the walls of the microchannel on the temperature stabilization of the flow in the microchannel. To achieve this goal, numerical simulation of the start flow in flat, round, and rectangular microchannels was performed using the Boltzmann Speech Method. The heat exchange in the initial region in flat, round and rectangular microchannels is analyzed. The influence of the fluid acceleration intensity on the stabilization of the flow temperature in the microchannel is determined.
