Course Objective

1.Explain the basic engineering principles of momentum and heat transfer. Describe how to make energy balances related to fluid flow, types of fluid flow, namely, laminar and turbulent. Explain the basic mechanisms of heat transfer, namely, conduction, convection and radiation. 2.Make basic engineering calculations related to momentum and heat transfer. 3.Apply his/her knowledge to some metallurgical and materials engineering problems like fluid flow in beds of solid particles, fluidization and pneumatic transport, casting, heat transfer through some metallurgical refractories, heat exchangers.

Course Content

Fluid flow; energy balances, friction, types of flow, flow measurements. Heat transfer; conduction, convection, radiation. Mass transfer; homogeneous kinetics, diffusion, heterogeneous reactions, nucleation and bubble formation, metastable products.

Learning Outcomes

Students apply their knowledge gained in this course and in other metallurgical and materials engineering courses to prepare process models and make calculations for the specific fluid flow and heat flow problems that can be encountered in the field.
