ChE-330 / 4 credits

Teacher: Sivula Kevin

Language: English


Summary

The concept of Shell balances, the Navier-Stokes equations and generalized differential balances equations for heat and mass transport are given. These relations are applied to model systems. Integral balances are introduced in the context of boundary layers and transfer coefficients.

Content

Keywords

Transport phenomena, Continuity equation, Navier-Stokes equation, Shell balance, Euler and Bernoulli equations, transfer in a system with multiple variables, transfer coefficent.
