The Equations of Change for Heat and Mass Transfer and Their Analytical Solutions

  • Günter BrennEmail author
Part of the Mathematical Engineering book series (MATHENGIN)


The present chapter puts together the thermal energy equation, with its special form for heat conduction, and the continuity equation for a component of a mixture in its various forms, including the purely diffusive form for equimolar processes. The two subsequent Chaps.  8 and  9 discuss analytical solutions of these equations.
