This paper presents the results of the study of unsteady swirling boundary-layer flow of compressible fluid in a nozzle and a diffuser when the free stream velocity, mass transfer and wall temperature vary arbitrarily with time. The set of coupled nonlinear partial differential equations governing the flow which involves three independent variables has been solved numerically using an implicit finite-difference scheme. Both the heat transfer and skin friction are strongly affected by the free stream velocity, variation of the density-viscosity product across the boundary layer, mass transfer and swirl parameter. However, the variation of the wall temperature with time strongly affects only the heat transfer. Also, separationless flow along the entire length of the diffuser can be obtained by applying appropriate amount of suction.
