Q:/ What is the reason for letting the inner boundary condition = (1) when solving the radial flow of infinite form of diffusivity equation, and I would like to know what would happen if I didn't equate it with (1). As in the attached pic: https://i.imgur.com/AVesmHM.png and here is the original pdf if you want: http://www.pe.tamu.edu/blasingame/da..._DimLssVar.pdf Last edited by skipjack; August 1st, 2017 at 03:16 PM.

I think you will find that the 1 refers to a sink, where the flow is leaving the plane of section
