Rationale
This course will introduce the concepts of fluid flow, heat transfer and mass transfer with behavior and processing of engineering materials as the focus. The course of Introduction to Transport Phenomena deals with various principles of fluid their flow and heat and mass transfer. As any metallurgical process involves fluids, heat and mass transfer this course aims to develop a basic understanding about the properties of fluids. Heat transfer is involved in metallurgical engineering processes like casting, welding, metal extraction by pyro-metallurgy or heat treatment of materials. The heat transfer modes namely conduction, convection and radiation are based on fundamental laws and its knowledge enhances the understanding of energy transfer in metallurgical processes. This will enable the students to apply basic principles of fluid mechanics and heat transfer to understand its role and to analyze and solve problems.
