IQUI-4101 Advanced Transportation Phenomena

The purpose of this course is to provide a fundamental understanding of the principles that govern the principles of diffusive and convective transport in various systems of interest for Chemical Engineering. To such end, modern tools and methods of heat and mass problem analysis are presented. Analysis includes both qualitative analysis (the one that does not require solution of partial differential equations and its borderline conditions) and the analytic solution that applies various mathematical methods and techniques. These analyses are supplemented by the application of advanced computer tools that include specialized packages such as Matlab, COMSOL and ANSYS-CFX, which enable the computer solution of complex systems for which the analytical solution is difficult.
