This course focuses on Fourier, Newton and Ficks flux laws. Topics: Conservation of energy, mass and momentum. Eulerian and Lagrangian frames. Momentum transfer: concept of viscosity, molecular transport of momentum, convective transport in laminar flows and concepts of turbulent transport. Energy transfer: molecular (conduction) transfer of heat, convective transfer of heat and radiative heat transfer. Mass transfer: molecular diffusion of mass, convective mass transfer.
Prerequisite: Graduate standing or advisor approval
