CBE-UY 3323 Transport II

3 Credits
This course establishes fundamental concepts in momentum transfer, fluid mechanics, fluid statics, and their applications in chemical and biomolecular systems. Topics include viscosity, laminar and turbulent fluid flow, macroscopic (integral) balances on finite control volumes of fluids (determination of inflow, outflow quantities), and microscopic (differential) balances on infinitesimal volumes of fluids (determination of fluid velocity profiles and pressure profiles). Students enrolled in this course will learn about Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids and the concepts of viscosity and stress tensor; understand molecular origins of momentum transport and its macroscopic mathematical description via vector, tensor algebra, and calculus; they will learn how to non dimensionalize and solve the Navier Stokes equations and be able to use geometric and dynamic similarity and dimensionless numbers to solve problems that are of interest to chemical engineers.
