Course description and aims

This course provides basic equations and solutions on transport phenomena. Transport phenomena consists of momentum transfer, heat transfer and mass transfer. Similarity of these basic equations are presented. Analysis models are made by simplifying the basic equation to appropriate simple equation for real phenomena. Models are solved mainly numerically. Numerical solutions are compared to analytical solutions.
The aim of the course is learning on model making and solving mathematical models on transport phenomena.

Student learning outcomes

1) Explain appropriate model making to real transport situation
2) Explain methods of numerical solution
3) Explain how well model predicts the phenomena
