Transport Phenomena - Delft University of Technology

Problem Solving in Heat, Mass and Momentum Transfer

Transport Phenomena deals with transport of quantities like mass, momentum and energy.
It is one of the fundamental themes in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering,
Aeronautics, Applied Physics, Civil Engineering, etc.

These web-pages focus not so much on the theory, but rather tries to help
develop problem solving skills, one of the big hurdles for students
studying Transport Phenomena.
Five chapters are given:

  • Introduction: this gives an overview and discussed the IDEA approach, that provides a strategy for problem solving;
  • Simple Reactors: given examples of CSTR's, etc.
  • Heat: dealing with heat transport
  • Mass: discussing mass transfer
  • Momentum: dealing with fluid flows.

An iBook with all the examples, movies, animations and widgets is available from Apple's iTunes store.
