AB The paper relates to processes such as the burning of pulverized solid fuel and of liquid fuel sprays, absorption of a gas component by a solvent spray, etc., and takes account of convection and turbulent mixing of the cloud. The Eulerian equation of conservation for the steady process is shown to be transformable into the Fourier equation for unsteady heat transfer in a flowing medium. Exact solutions are given for a one-dimensional system, an axially symmetrical system, and the steady-flow homogeneous reactor. Numerical methods are indicated for more complex systems, and the possibility of solution by means of an analogue is pointed out.
