Physical transport phenomena



In this course the transport mechanisms (and their rates) for mass, momentum and energy will be discussed together with the corresponding laws of conservation. The focus will be on technical fluid dynamics (such as pressure drop calculations for tubing-systems and packed particulate beds) and on making approximations and comparing heat and mass transfer resistances of the various transport mechanisms, with the aim to be able to make a basic design (main dimensions) of simple process equipment.
