A modified Ritz method for solving nonuniform slip flow in a duct is applied to the semicircular duct and the isosceles triangular duct. These ducts are important in microfluidics. Detailed flow fields and Poiseuille numbers show the large effects of nonuniform slip. A rare exact solution for the semicircular duct with nonzero slip is also found.
