Learning Outcomes
On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  1. - identify and describe transport mechanisms for heat, mass and momentum, developing & solving models, appropriately simplified, which address transport phenomena and conservation laws, of physical transport problems (including with 1-D fluid flow)
  2. - solve problems in turbulent transport using empirical approaches and the Chilton-Colburn analogy
  3. - understand the phenomena of phase change and how this affects transport problems
  4. - perform a preliminary heat exchanger design using Kern's method
  5. - extend simple cases of heat transfer to include radiation and for fluid flow to use 2-parameter non-Newtonian models to obtain velocity profiles.
