Boundarylayer diffusion on a plate with inhomogeneous chemical properties
Abstract
A problem concerning steadystate convective diffusion of a substance dissolved in a viscous incompressible fluid forming a laminar flow past a flat plate is reduced to a nonlinear integral equation. An analogous equation is obtained for a similar flow within a circular pipe. The equations are solved using an iteration procedure. Exact lower and upper bounds are obtained, and conditions are defined under which the surface concentration of the solute substance decreases as the distance from the point where the plate originates increases. Numerical results are given.
