Description The aim of the module is to provide an introduction to transport phenomena (heat and mass transfer for this part) as well as associated engineering applications.

Heat and mass Transfer:
a) Conduction/Diffusion: (one-dimensional steady state) Fourier’s and Fick’s Law, conduction with multiple layers, simple geometries, resistance in series.
b) Convection and Boundary Layers: Heat and Mass transfer coefficients for natural and forced convection. Practical problems involving forced convection, resistances in series, overall transfer coefficients, Design of simple exchangers, log-mean differences.
c) Basics of radiation: (Stefan-Boltzmann equation), emissivity, absorptivity, transmissivity and reflectivity, net exchange of radiation between surfaces.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Have knowledge and understanding of scientific principles and methodology necessary to underpin their education in mechanical and related engineering disciplines, to enable appreciation of its scientific and engineering context and to support their understanding of future developments and technologies
  • Have knowledge and understanding of mathematical principles necessary to underpin their education in mechanical and related engineering disciplines and to enable them to apply mathematical methods, tools and notations proficiently in the analysis and solution of engineering problems.
