41380 Heat and Mass Transfer

Requisite(s): 68037 Physical Modelling AND 33230 Mathematics 2


This subject identifies the driving forces for heat, mass and convective transfer, and the development of transport models from first principles. Students examine the formation of temperature and concentration gradients within and across a boundary layer. The principles of heat and mass transfer are explored in a range of contexts and configurations (e.g. multi-stage, natural convection, forced convection, and phase transition). Upon the completion of this subject, students are able to solve and recommend solutions for heat and mass transfer systems associated with industrial and real-life applications in the chemical process industries.
