Prerequisite
A course on Fluid Flow Operation, Process Heat Transfer, Mass Transfer Operation and Vector Calculus.
Rationale
Transport Phenomena is the subject which deals with the movement of different physical quantities such as momentum, energy and mass in any chemical or mechanical process and combines the basic principles (conservation laws) and laws of various types of transport.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Setup overall balances for conservation of momentum, energy and mass.
2. Recognize and apply analogies among momentum, heat and mass transfer.
3. Reduce and solve the appropriate equations of change to obtain desired profiles for velocity, temperature and concentration.
4. Utilize information obtained from solutions of the balance equations to obtain Engineering quantities of interest.
5. Reduce and solve appropriate macroscopic balances for conservation of momentum, energy and mass.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
