Part of the Mathematical Engineering book series (MATHENGIN)

Abstract

This chapter, the general mathematical description is adapted for the rotating disk configurations. The chapter overviews in brief the existing mathematical methodology applicable to modelling the convective heat and mass transfer in such configurations, describes in detail the integral method developed by myself (referred to as “the present integral method” in this book) and gives a general analytical solution for turbulent boundary layer flow and heat transfer derived with the help of this method
