EG3030: HEAT, MASS & MOMENTUM TRANSFER (2014-2015)

Last modified: 26 Jun 2014 14:28


Course Overview

This course focuses on applied momentum, heat, and mass transport in relevant engineering systems. The analytical results of transport phenomena are demonstrated in simple systems before discussing more complex systems, such as multiphase flow, which require the use of semi-empirical correlations to solve.

Course Description

The theory of transport phenomena is introduced through the constitutive relationships and general balance equations. All of these concepts are introduced in vector and index notation to familiarise the students with 3D problems. These tools are then applied to simple three-dimensional problems in momentum, heat and mass transfer. The course includes the fundamentals of incompressible flow, non-Newtonian flow, multiphase flow, forced/natural convection heat transfer, boiling, radiation, and condensation. Generalised multicomponent diffusion is then introduced and used to solve equimolar counter-diffusion, diffusion through a stationary phase, and real applications of these idealised processes.

Students carry out numerical calculation using Matlab or Excel as part of the tutorials and continuous assessment.
