in collaboration with DBP Huynh & NC Nguyen


Q1 Predict how the boundary layer grows with x as a function of Pe.

Q2 Predict/confirm the extent of the region near the "leading edge" over which axial conduction effects will be felt.

Q3 Predict the distance downstream at which the temperature profile will become (a) fully developed, and then (b) uniform.

Q4 Show the output variation with Pe and L in particular for low and high Pe.
