This note is intended to show that an estimation of s may be obtained by the adaptation of the surface renewal and penetration model to momentum transfer. This value of s may in turn be used in conjunction with this basic model to predict mean mass and heat transfer rates as well as velocity temperature and concentration profiles associated with many turbulent transport processes.
