At low qualities, the capacity degradation monotonically decreases with the increase of the mass flux since the distribution is improved, however, at [x.sub.in] = 0.8, the capacity degradation reaches a minimum at [m.sub.in] = 3.17 g x [s.sup.-1] (0.0070 lb x [s.sup.-1]).
A detailed numerical study of the incompressible viscous fluid MHD flow past an impulsively started semi-infinite isothermal vertical plate with uniform mass flux in the presence of homogeneous chemical reaction of first order, is presented in the paper.
A comparison of the averaged values of the hydroxyl ion mass flux, the values of which have been determined in two time intervals (Table 2), proves that the electrochemical realkalization process has an unsteady character through the whole period.

In this model, the velocity along the x-axis and all turbulence parameters are interpolated by means of a mass flux weighted scheme, and, to obtain velocity along the y-axis, the continuity equation was solved on the coarse grid.
One consequence of these changes in mantle morphology and function is that the average mass flux of the escape jet, relative to body mass, is highest in hatchling squids and declines significantly during growth (Thompson and Kier, 2001a).
