Here we investigate longitudinal waves in non-isothermal hot (T 5.0 MK) coronal loops. Motivated by SOHO SUMER and Yohkoh SXT observations and taking into account gravitational stratification, thermal conduction, compressive viscosity, radiative cooling, and heating, the governing equations of 1D hydrodynamics is solved numerically for standing wave oscillations along a magnetic field line. A semicircular shape is chosen to represent a coronal loop. It was found that the decay time of standing waves decreases with the increase of the initial temperature and the periods of oscillations are affected by the different initial velocities and loop lengths studied by the numerical experiments. The predicted decay times are within the range of values inferred from Doppler-shift oscillations observed by SUMER in hot coronal loops.
