An analysis is performed for mass transfer in a rectangular gas passage, porous diffusion layer, and the combination of the two. The results of detailed calculations are presented and correlated in terms of the mass transfer driving force as a function of the blowing parameter and geometry, as characterized by the aspect ratio and blockage factor. It is shown that a simple solution for the overall driving force may be obtained for the conjugate mass transfer problem. This solution is quite general in its nature. The mathematical foundations are presented together with the details of the computational procedure used to obtain the results.
