Course Purpose

Students will be introduced to the principles of momentum, mass and heat transport and the mathematical modeling of transport in one and two dimensions. Students will setup and simplify differential balances for conservation of momentum, mass and energy employ balance equations to obtain profiles for velocity, temperature and concentration for dimensionally simple problems. Students will utilize information obtained from solutions of the balance equations to obtain engineering quantities of interest (flow rates, pressure drop, energy transferred, and power requirements). For more dimensionally complex problems, students will be introduced to dimensional analysis to analyze to simplify transport processes by identifying the dominant transport mechanisms.
