Steady State Convective Transport

WithJuan C. Heinrich, Darrell W. Pepper

Most of the discussions in the previous chapters have been restricted to diffusion equations in which the differential operator is self-adjoint and for which a rich mathematical theory is available. We now turn our attention to transport by convection. This is an important transport mechanism in situations where the physical system under consideration has a fluid component, and in many cases the dominant one.
