CBE 341 (STN)  

Mass, Momentum, and Energy Transport

Mark P. Brynildsen

Course will survey modeling and solution methods for the transport of fluids, heat and chemical species in response to differences in pressure, temperature and concentration. Both steady state and transient behavior will be examined.Topics include fluid statics; conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy; dimensional analysis; viscous flow at high and low Reynolds number; thermal conduction; convective heat and mass transfer, correlations; diffusion and interphase mass transfer. Working knowledge of calculus, linear algebra and ordinary differential equations is assumed.

Sample reading list:
Welty, Wicks, Rorrer and Wilson, Fundamentals of Momentum, Heat, and Mass Transfer
Bird, Stewart, Lightfoot, Transport Phenomena
