Course Description

Learning the derivation of a basic differential equation from the shell balance for a small element, and the technique to evaluate phenomena in flow and heat transfer quantitatively.Group discussion is allowed when report is prepared at every exercise.In this lesson, we mainly acquire knowledge about DP1.

Course Objectives

The study of basics of the transfer of momentum, heat and mass.

Grading Policy
