This course provides an introduction to the field of transport phenomena, including molecular mechanisms of momentum transport (viscous flow); energy transport (heat conduction); mass transport (diffusion); isothermal equations of change (continuity, motion, and energy); the development of the Navier-Stokes equation; the development of non-isothermal and multicomponent equations of change for heat and mass transfer; and exact solutions to steady-state, isothermal unidirectional flow problems and to steady-state heat and mass transfer problems. The analogies between heat, mass, and momentum transfer are emphasized throughout the course. Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in Calculus I and II and 540.202 Introduction to Chemical & Biological Process Analysis or permission of instructor. 540.202 is offered through the fulltime Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Department. Corequisite(s): 500.303 Applied Mathematics I or AS.110.302. Course Note(s): Not for graduate credit.
