CHE2163  Heat and mass transfer6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSLUndergraduate Faculty of EngineeringLeader: C TiuOffered
Clayton Second semester 2008 (Day) SynopsisIntroduce fundamentals and applications of heat and mass transfer. Develop an understanding of the mechanisms and mathematical representation of conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer and convective mass transfer. Gain an appreciation for the analogies between heat and mass transfer using dimensional analysis. Understand and apply concepts of local and overall heat and mass transfer coefficients including boiling heat transfer to simple problems. Gain an understanding of molecular diffusion in gases, solids, and liquids and develop methods to use these concepts in problem solving. Perform experiments to illustrate the concepts of heat and mass transfer. Objectives
1a. Understand the basic mechanisms of conduction, convection and radiation and the mathematical representations of the corresponding rates of heat transfer Assessment
