The shooting method in establishment of concentration profiles in diffusive boundary layer


A viscous incompressible fluid reacts chemically with a rotating disk. We establish the diffusion equation in the boundary layer  corresponding to the homogeneous as well as to the heterogeneous chemical reactions. The nonlinear two-point boundary value problems for concentration and the vertical component of velocity are solved by shooting method.
