Numerical results are presented for the transient and steady state Velocity, Temperature and Concentration fields. These results are obtained by solving the partial differential equations describing the conservation, momentum energy and species concentration by an explicit finite – difference method in time – dependent form. It was discovered that a maximum exist which confirm that maximum velocity and temperature occur in the body of the fluid and not in the surface as previously reported. A parametric study was conducted and the results were presented and discussed.
