It is available in most of the heat and mass transfer textbooks. (I understood that u need a solution for a 1D mass transfer problem by diffusion and by convection)

 July 14, 2003, 12:37 Re: Analytical Solution of 1D Convection Diffusion #4 Suman Kumar Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Thanks you very much for your response ! I am looking for the method of ananytical solution of STEADY ONE-DIMENSIONAL CONVECTION-DIFFUSION EQUATION. It is the Equation-5.4 Section-5.2 at Page-80 of " NUMERICAL HEAT TRANSFER AND FLUID FLOW" by PATANKAR. The exact analytical solution is given in the same reference in Section-5.2.3 at Page-85. I am looking for the reference book which describes the method for getting above mentioned solution. Regards, SK.

 July 14, 2003, 13:53 Re: Analytical Solution of 1D Convection Diffusion #5 ag Guest   Posts: n/a If it's the equation dc/dt + c(dc/dx) = nu*d2c/dx2 then the solution can be found using the Cole-Hopf transformation as outlined in "Linear and Nonlinear Waves" by G. B. Whitham, chap. 4. The procedure is remarkably straightforward and consists of transforming the equation to remove the nonlinear term. (Sorry, I don't have Patankar's book on hand)

BAZEETH AHAMED Guest   Posts: n/a hi as i dont have the book specified by u. i was not able to refer it. still i belive that i can help u in getting the solution if i know the nature of the problem exactly.Is it a heat transfer problem? or mass transfer problem? or mixed one? What is the equation and varaiables involved and the boundary conditions? u can mail me to kmbahamed@rediffmail.com

 July 15, 2003, 14:05 Re: Analytical Solution of 1D Convection Diffusion #8 MT Guest   Posts: n/a for the following equation U(d(phi)/dx) = nu*d2(phi)/dx2 Phi being any variable, you can use solution to second order ODE with constant coefficients (Ref: Kreyszig, Engineering Math.). It will have exp(+/-) function as the basis solutions, constants will be determined from BC. If I recall correctly, that's what is described in Patankar's book. Note: ag gave a better (i.e. more general) answer to convection-diffusion equation in this message thread
