Preshaped rectangular sand slabs were subjected to hot oxidizing streams. The rate of mass loss due to fluid volatilization at constant stream temperature was established and correlated with time by a simple analytical expression that fitted the experimental data well. The correlation parameters showed that the ultimate extent of volatilization depends uniquely on the surrounding stream temperature. The time rate of mass loss was found to be a function of Reynolds and Schmidt numbers and the temperature of the heating stream.
