Problems of heat and mass transfer in fluid flow over a rotating disk for the Prandtl or Schmidt numbers larger than unity are of great importance in a number of industrial and scientific applications. To mention a few, one should count electrochemistry, where the rotating-disk electrode technique is widely used for experimental determination of the diffusion coefficient at the Schmidt numbers much larger than unity [3, 6, 8, 37, 39, 40, 42, 48, 81, 102, 105, 126, 131, 157]. The second area of application actual for the present research is the naphthalene sublimation technique often employed in experimental measurements of the mass transfer coefficients h m [24, 28, 29, 59, 64, 96, 97, 117, 193, 195, 201, 208].
