The local mass transfer of a flat plate in a longitudinal non-Newtonian fluid flow has been analytically and experimentally investigated. The agreement between experiment and calculation is completely satisfactory. The effect of the rheological characteristics of the solution on the location of the laminar-turbulent boundary layer transition has been established.
