FPEN 705: Transport Phenomena


This course aims to give advanced knowledge in transport phenomena covering momentum transport (viscous flow), energy transport (heat conduction, convection and radiation) and mass transport (diffusion) in continua in food systems. Topics will include kinetic theory of transport processes, transport by molecular motion (viscosity, thermal conductivity and diffusivity), transport in an arbitrary continuum (equations of change for isothermal, non-isothermal and multi-component systems), transport in laminar flow with two independent variables, transport in turbulent flow, transport between two phases.
