Transport phenomena course – Resource Smart Processes

Course content:

The course will be a combination of lectures and seminars covering transport phenomena such as molecular motion, arbitrary continua, and turbulent flow (see course program for more info).

This course is given by Resource-smart Processes. Read more about RSP

Learning objectives:

The aim of this course is to give an in-depth understanding of transport phenomena and how these are applied. Understanding of mathematical modelling is central.

Topics: Transport phenomena, i.e. transport of momentum, heat and mass, is of fundamental importance for research in chemical engineering as well as in applications in design of separation equipment, chemical reactors, heat exchangers, etc.
