CHEG 342 Heat and Mass Transfer

This course is designed to give students a quantitative understanding of the mechanism of mass and heat transfer in physical situations of importance to chemists and chemical engineers.  This is accomplished by the analysis of experiments, mathematical modeling, and comparison of model behavior with experimental results.  The verified models are used to illustrate:

  • The design and operation of process equipment at the lab, pilot and commercial scale
  • The analogies between heat, mass and momentum transport
  • The analysis, prediction of behavior, and control of living organisms and the natural environment
