Master the equations that describe the change in velocity, temperature and concentration with respect to position and time.
Knowledge and Understanding
For a passing grade the doctoral student must Be able to explain, be able to formulate mathematical models and be able to solve problems in the area of transport phenomena.
Competences and Skills
For a passing grade the doctoral student must Be able to construct and simplify mathemathical models for transport phenomena. Solve these models either using pure mathematics or applied tools such as Comsol Multiphysics.
Judgement and Approach
For a passing grade the doctoral student must Independenatly reflect about which physical phenomena that has to be included to describe a specific chemical engineering process.
A number of chapters within momentum, heat and mass transfer are studied. The focus can vary from year to year.
