Course Language
Course Contents
Heat and mass transfer / Fluid dynamics:
Mass-, energy- and impulse balances; the laws of Fourier and Fick, Newton’s viscosity law, transport coefficients; dimension analysis; stationary and non-stationary conduction of heat, convective heat transfer, heat exchangers; stationary and non-stationary diffusion, convective mass transfer, mass transfer over a phase interface; technical hydrodynamics; laminar flow.
Study Goals
The objective of the course is to acquire understanding of mass-, energy- and impuls transport. Upon termination of the course, the student must be able to:
 point out the transport mechanisms;
 set up a balance;
 model the various forms of transport;
 give (numerical) answers to detailed questions;
 criticize the plausibility of these answers.
