## Abstract

We studied a nonisothermal dissolution of a solvable solid spherical particle in an axisymmetric non-uniform fluid flow when the concentration level of the solute in the solvent is finite (finite dilution of solute approximation). It is shown that simultaneous heat and mass transfer during solid sphere dissolution in a uniform fluid flow, axisymmetric shear flow, shear-translational flow and flow with a parabolic velocity profile can be described by a system of generalized equations of convective diffusion and energy. Solutions of diffusion and energy equations are obtained in an exact analytical form. Using a general solution the asymptotic solutions for heat and mass transfer problem during spherical solid particle dissolution in a uniform fluid flow, axisymmetric shear flow, shear-translational flow and flow with parabolic velocity profile are derived. Theoretical results are in compliance with the available experimental data on falling urea particles dissolution in water and for solid sphere dissolution in a shear flow.
