FPEN 306: Transport Phenomena III (Mass Transfer)


Objectives: To understand the concept of mass transfer and its application in process engineering.

Description: The course covers applications of mass transfer including unit operations and separations. Students are introduced to fundamentals of diffusion and mass transport as well as mass transfer applications - non-equilibrium separations including gas absorption and adsorption, membrane processes and devices and crystallization. Microscopic and macroscopic issues are discussed. Students will be taught to appreciate unsteady-state mass transfer, simultaneous heat and mass transfer-hot air drying, spray drying and freeze-drying applications
