Instructor Class Description

Time Schedule:

Felix Nhanchau Nguyen
CHEM E 330
Seattle Campus

Transport Processes I

Diffusive transport of momentum, heat, and mass; general aspects of fluid flow; the Navier-Stokes equations; one-dimensional flow with engineering applications. Prerequisite: CHEM E 310; either MATH 136 or MATH 307. Offered: A.

Class description

As the first in a series of three courses on the transport of momentum, heat, and mass, this course covers the fundamental principles of transport processes. Topics covered include modes of transport, phenomenological rate laws for diffusive transport, transport coefficients, and conservation principles. These fundamental principles will be applied first to one-dimensional heat, mass, and momentum transfer problems, then extended to three dimensions and curvilinear coordinates.

The prerequisites for this course are: CHEM E 310 and either MATH 136 or MATH 307.
