An extensive experimental investigation using the Naphthalene Sublimation Technique, has been carried out to explore the mass transfer processes on inclined flat plates at rotation. It has been found that the flows responsible for the transfer processes can be classified into three types, namely, flow without a separated region, flow with a separated region located near the leading edge, and flow with a separated region all over the surface. A wind tunnel experiment on stationary flat plates has been also performed so as to isolate the effects of incidence angle from the rotational effects. A tremendous increase in transfer rate has been observed for the surface of the rotational system exposed to a wake flow.
