Transport Phenomena(ECH3015)

This course will acquaint the student with important topics in advanced transport phenomena (momentum, heat and mass transport). Topics include laminar and turbulent flow, thermal conductivity and the energy equation, molecular mass transport and diffusion with heterogeneous and homogeneous chemical reactions. Focus will be to develop physical understanding of principles discussed and with emphasis on chemical engineering applications. In addition to the text, the student will be exposed to classic and current literature in the field.
