Heat and Mass Transfer
7.5 ECTS credits
The course comprises the following components: Heat transfer, energy balances, heat exchangers, mass transfer, air-water system, Mollier diagram. The course treats the different mechanisms for heat transfer from a warm to a cold body, conduction, natural and forced convection, and radiation. Combined heat transfer through convection and radiation and the dimensioning of different types of heat exchangers are treated. Also treated are mass transfer from high to low concentration using Fick's law and simple cases of convective mass tranfer. An introduction to linked mass and heat tranfer is provided.
Progressive specialisation: G1F (has less than 60 credits in first‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Undergraduate level
Admission requirements: Mechanics with Applications 1. 7.5 ECTS cr., Applied Thermodynamics, 7.5 ECTS cr. and Thermal fluid sciences, 7.5 ECTS cr, or equivalent.
