CHME300 – Heat and Mass Transfer

Course description

This course provides students with a fundamental principles and equations governing heat and mass transfer to establish a framework for design, control and optimization of unit operations referred to chemical engineering practice. The major focus of this course is three basic mechanisms of heat transfer (conduction, convection, and radiation) and mass transfer processes controlled by diffusion or convection. Furthermore, simultaneous heat and mass transfer cases will be included into a consideration.   The course will also serve developing of engineering models especially when integrating multi-discipline subjects.

Course Pre-Requisites: CHME201, CHME202

Course Learning Outcomes

  1. Classify typical equipment and processes in which control of the heat or mass transfer constitutes a dominant factor.
  2. Select the basic experimental techniques to determine heat and mass transfer rates.
  3. Apply the appropriate model for the selected heat and mass problem and solve the appropriate equations.
  4. Find the key factors for the design of heat and mass transfer equipment.
  5. Select and size the most appropriate heat exchanger type for a specific task.

Course Outline

In this course students will learn about: heat conduction and convection and analogous mass transfer processes.
