Transport phenomena I

ChE-301

Lecturer(s) :

Sivula Kevin

Language:

English

Summary

- Derivation of differential balances equations for momentum, heat and mass. In this context, the derivation of the Navier-Stokes equation is applied for the calculation of velocity profiles in some systems. - Recognize and apply the analogies between the three types of transfer.

Content

 

- Equations for molecular flow: material (Fick's law); heat (Fourier's law); momentum (Newton's law).

- Analogy between the three types of transfer (linked by their diffusivities).

- Non-Newtonian fluids (Bingham and Ostwald models, thixotropic and rheopectic fluids).

- Differential and integral mass balance.

- Derivation and application of the continuity equation.

- Integral and differential momentum balance.

- The Navier-Stokes equation (analytical solution for simple systems).

- The perfect fluid: Euler and Bernoulli equations, validity domain.

- Pressure drop in a complex flow circuit. Use of the Moody diagram.

- Momentum, heat and mass transfer in multiple variables systems (solving partial differential equations).
