We consider the Cauchy problem for nonstationary 1D flow of a compressible viscous and heat-conducting micropolar fluid, assuming that it is in the thermodynamical sense perfect and polytropic. This problem has a unique generalized solution on for each . Supposing that the initial functions are small perturbations of the constants we derive a priori estimates for the solution independent of , which we use in proving of the stabilization of the solution.
