Chapter 10. Convective Mass Transfer: Theory for Internal Laminar Flow

Learning Objectives

After completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Formulate models for mass transfer under laminar flow in confined geometries.

  • Express the model in dimensionless form and identify dimensionless groups.

  • Solve for mass transfer in fully developed flow from a pipe using the hypergeometric function.

  • Model and solve for mass transfer in the entry region of a pipe using the similarity solution method.

  • Solve for convective mass transfer with wall reaction using the CHEBFUN code.

  • Model mass transfer rate in solid dissolution and gas absorption from a falling film.

  • Use the PDEPE solver for numerical solution of convective mass transfer problems in a more general ...
