General description

This course is taught at Åbo Akademi. More details about the course available at Åbo Akademi's MinPlan system.

Learning outcomes

To give the student advanced knowledge and understanding of physical transport phenomena as encountered during (chemical) process engineering and how these can be modelled. Especially important are two- and three-dimensional and time-dependent systems, including cases with also a convective flow is involved.


The student will expand his basic knowledge of heat and mass transfer and fluid dynamics to time-variant, two- and three-dimensional cases that may include a fluid flow.
Topics: Stationary and non-stationary heat and mass transfer in 2D and 3D; Laminar and turbulent boundary layer flows; Heat and mass transfer in laminar and turbulent flows
