Abstract

The unsteady, laminar, incompressible, swirling boundary-layer flow with heat and mass transfer in a nozzle, a diffuser and a hydrocyclone has been investigated when the free-stream velocity and mass transfer vary with time. The governing non-linear partial differential equations with three independent variables have been solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference scheme. Both the heat transfer and skin friction are found to be strongly affected by swirl and mass transfer, but only moderately affected by the free-stream velocity. However, the Prandtl number strongly affects only the heat transfer, whereas the skin friction is unaffected by it.
