An analysis of internal flows with surface mass transfer is performed in which account is taken of velocity slip at the surface of the porous bounding wall. The solutions for channel and tube flows reveal a variety of interesting effects of velocity slip, which depend upon whether fluid is injected or withdrawn at the bounding wall and upon the sign of the streamwise pressure gradient. For example, relative to the situation in which there is no slip, the stream wise pressure gradient may either increase or decrease in the presence of slip and may even undergo a change of sign.
