Have you ever wondered why ventilation helps to cool down your hot chocolate? Do you know why a surfing suit keeps you warm? Why iron feels cold, while wood feels warm at room temperature? Or how air is transferred into aqueous liquids in a water treatment plant? How can we sterilize milk with the least amount of energy? Or how do we design a new cooling tower of a power plant?
Transport Phenomena addresses questions like these and many more, exploring a wide variety of applications ranging from industrial processes to daily life problems and even to bioprocesses in our own body.The "The Basics of Transport Phenomena" programme is offered by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
You will learn to:
- Identify heat transfer, mass transfer and fluid flow phenomena in lab, industrial and daily environment
- Identify quantities and subjects used in transport phenomena
- Use balances to solve problems
- Apply the concepts of transport phenomena to a variety of real life problems
- Make the correct assumptions to put real-life situations into mathematical model
- Solve and assess a model from a quantitative perspective
- See the world through different eyes
