TRANSPORT PHENOMENA 1   [Archived Catalog]
2019-2020 Johnstown Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This is the first course in transport phenomena and stresses analogies between the three modes of transport phenomena; momentum, mass, and heat transport. Covers from the molecular origins of transport up through continuum descriptions, as well as macroscopic balances. Reynolds and Colburn analogies in boundary-layer flow as well as direct comparison of linear transport relations, such as fluid drag and mass/heat convection will be a primary focus. Problems ranging from (traditional) packed bed reactors to micro-fluidics or micro-electromechanical systems will also be discussed.
