After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Understand basic properties of turbulent flow and the concept of time averaging.
Appreciate that there is a closure problem in modeling of turbulent flows.
Define and use the eddy diffusivity model for closure of the problem.
Apply the eddy diffusivity model to find the flux and mass transfer coefficients in typical turbulent solid–liquid mass transfer problems.
Understand the basis of the analogy of mass transfer with momentum transfer.
Understand common models of turbulent mass transfer from a gas–liquid interface.
This chapter introduces and solves problems where mass transfer occurs under turbulent flow conditions. ...
