a written in cylindrical co-ordinates are listed in Table 2.2. To model flow processes in complex process equipment, it may be necessary to use a more general co-ordinate system. It is possible to transform the equations listed in Table 2.2 into any such suitable co-ordinate systems. Anderson et al. (1984) listed governing equations applicable to any orthogonal curvilinear co-ordinates.
