AB] and Sh are soot mass concentration, thermophoretic drift velocity, particle diffusion coefficient, and Sherwood number respectively.
For a two-phase flow consideration, dimensionless numbers are used: Sherwood number as a representative of the mass transfer and Reynolds number as a representative of the flow hydrodynamics.
The skin friction, Nusselt number, and Sherwood number are important physical parameters for this type of boundary layer flow and are given by
The effect of velocity, temperature, concentration, local as well as average skinfriction, and Nusselt number and Sherwood number are studied for different parameters during transient and steady-state period.
The Sherwood number (Sh) at r = 1&2 is shown in table 7&8 for different Sc & [gamma].
They observed Sherwood number to increase with increase in tube spacing from 2 to 5 mm and then levels off at 10 mm or higher.
The authors stress the importance of the mass transfer coefficient, calculated by the Sherwood number correlations, in estimating membrane separation models used by fruit juice processing plants.
The non-dimensional particle flux to the collector surface is quantified by the Sherwood number, Sh, which in this study is defined as:
For a spherical and isolated droplet submerged in a creeping flow, the Sherwood number could be approximated by the equation suggested by Brian and Hales (25) as follows,
Results obtained are displayed graphically for velocity, temperature, concentration, skin friction, Nusselt number, and Sherwood number for various flow parameters.
The dimensionless local as well as average values of skin-friction, Nusselt number and the Sherwood number are given by the following expressions:
