CHEM E 330
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.
: This course is an introduction to the core chemical engineering topic of fluid mechanics. In addition, it serves to introduce the student to the 3 different transport processes of momentum, heat, and mass transfer, but focus on momentum transfer (fluid mechanics). Section B for BSE students covers some different topics than the standard CHEM E 330 course. Students who are either straight chemical engineering majors or double majors in CHEM E/BSE need to take section A in order to satisfy the CHEM E degree course requirements. CHEM E 330 B will cover fluid properties and pumping requirements of pulp suspensions in addition to fundamental fluid mechanics material.
