Numerical solutions are presented for combined heat and mass transfer by mixed convection induced from a buried pipe with leakage. Two locations of leakage are considered in the present study: one is on top of the pipe and the other is at the bottom of the pipe. The governing equations formulated in the body-fitted coordinates are solved via the finite difference method. A parametric study has been performed to investigate the effects of Rayleigh number, Peclet number, Lewis number, and buoyancy ratio N on the heat and mass transfer results. It is found that both the Nusselt number and Sherwood number increase for the aiding flows (N > 0) and decrease for the opposing flows (N < 0). For aiding flows, Sherwood number increases with the Lewis number but Nusselt number decreases with the Lewis number.
