Mathematica Notebooks for ChEg 358, Chemical Engineering Laboratory I

 

This shows how to use a similarity variable to reduce the boundary layer equations for energy and momentum, for a natural convection flow caused by a heated surface, to a set of ODE's. A shooting method is employed to solve them. It uses the notation of and is based on F. P. Incropera and D. P. DeWitt, Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer.
