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.

Sorry, we don't have a record of any course coordinators.
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.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 three-hour written examination paper (80%), and continuous assessment (20%). Resit: 1 three-hour written examination paper (100%).
There are no assessments for this course.
Students receive individual, written feedback on their coursework. We also provide whole-class feedback via MyAberdeen. We also put model answers for all tutorial sheets on MyAberdeen to give students the chance to self-assess their own performance.
