Undergraduate Course: Heat, Mass and Momentum Transfer 3 (CHEE09013)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 9 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course covers the following topics: Heat, Mass and Momentum Transfer. The fundamentals of heat, mass and momentum transfer are presented, including analogies between the transfer mechanisms for convective transfer and treatment of radiative heat tranfer.
40 L+ weekly surgery hours
Topics covered are:
Introduction, rate laws
Transfer processes in stationary systems
Momentum transfer (analytical)
Dimensional analysis and empirical momentum transfer
Convective heat transfer
Heat transfer equipment
Convective heat transfer with phase changes
Convective & interphase transfer; analogy theory
Combined transfer processes
Radiant heat transfer
Additionally, self study material is available on the course VLE which allows students to keep abreast of lecture material; solutions appear periodically.

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- 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)
- Solve problems in turbulent transport using empirical approaches and the Chilton-Colburn analogy
- Understand the phenomena of phase change and how this affects transport problems
- Perform a preliminary heat exchanger design using Kern's method
- Extend simple cases of heat transfer to include radiation and for fluid flow to use 2-parameter non-Newtonian models to obtain velocity profiles.
