Abstract
The report documents a two-dimensional, finite element study of the evaporation of a liquid on a flat surface into a laminar air stream for three geometries: a hemispherical drop in a flat plate; a hemispherical drop between parallel plates; a smear on a flat plate. The problems are made dimensionless and the flux from the liquid is determined in a parametric analysis with a range of values of the resulting independent variables. A comparison is made with some experimental data and an example of the use of the results is given.
