Direct Access Fee:

There is no access fee for this course.


Topics include equations of heat, mass, and momentum transfer; viscosity, thermal conductivity and diffusivity in laminar and turbulent conditions; velocity, temperature, and concentration distributions in selected systems; Navier-Stokes equations: direct simulation and turbulence modelling – Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS); turbulence near surfaces and interphase transport; multicomponent mass transfer; transport in porous media; effects of narrow pore size; and the dusty-gas model (DGM). A project is required.
