A mathematical model based on the boundary layer theory is proposed. The model consists of equation of flow with uniform effective kinematic viscosity nu //e and equations of bubble and solute diffusion with uniform effective diffusivities, D//e//,//B and D//e//,//S, respectively. Equations were solved numerically assuming nu //e equals D//e//,//B equals D//e//,//S and the theoretical distribution of local gas holdup, axial velocity, and solute concentration were obtained.
