Abstract

Diffusion theory has not assumed as yet the degree of organizational elegance accorded to fluid-flow and heat-transfer theories. In this paper mass-transport phenomena and their nondimensional correlation are summarized. In order that the similarities between energy, momentum, and mass-transport phenomena may be exhibited, the discussion of diffusion is preceded by brief summaries of dynamic and temperature boundary-layer theories.
