Transport Phenomena I

Bachelor Degree in Materials Engineering (3rd year)

Teachers: M. Frigione, C. Esposito Corcione
Theoretical lessons
  • Moment Transfer
    Constitutive Equation : Newton law. Non newtonian fluids flow. Moment balance. Distribution of velocity in the laminar flow and in the solids.
  • Heat Transfer
    Constitutive equation : Fourier law of conduction. Distribution of temperature in the laminar flow. Heat balance.
  • Mass transfer
    Constitutive equation : Fick's law of diffusion. Distribution of concentration in the laminar flow and in the solids.
  • Conservation equations for isothermal systems with one ore more components.
  • Non steady state
    Conservation equations for non steady state. Dimensionless number : Biot.
Practice
    Transport problems in steady and non steady state:
  • Solution of balance and transport equations for problems in steady and isothermal state with one or more components.
  • Solution of the conservation equations for the non steady state.
  • Mass transfer
    Constitutive equation : Fick's law of diffusion. Distribution of concentration in the laminar flow and in the solids.
