Expected prior knowledge
Introduction to Thermodynamics TN1201, Differential equations WI2140TN
Course Contents
Conservation laws and Marcoscopic and microspic balance equations for mass, momementum and energy. Dimensionaless numbers, dimensional analysis. Hydrodynamic forces on solid bodies. Convective and diffusive transport or mass, momentum and energy. Heat and mass transfer, Nusselt and Sherwood relations. Thermal radiation. Techniocal fluid dynamics. Laminar flows of newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids.
Study Goals
Students should learn to understand and analyze the mechanisms relevant for the transport of mass, momentum and energy, and learn to solve the resulting balance equations. Students should be able to apply this knowledge to real problems from physics, process technology, energy technology, environmental engineering and daily life.
Education Method
Two times per week 1 hour of lecture, followed by 1 hour of exercises. Participation in exercises and homework leads to bonus score for examination.
