|Subject Overview:||The fundamental concepts of heat transfer are extended from that covered in earlier subjects to include natural and forced convection and two phase systems. Mass transfer concepts are extended to unsteady state mass transfer and Fick's Second Law, prediction of diffusivity and of mass transfer coefficients. These fundamental concepts are then applied to the design of processes and equipment including shell and tube, air-cooled and plate heat exchangers, evaporator systems, membrane devices, binary distillation systems, gas absorbers and cooling towers. Use of appropriate simulation packages such as HYSYS and ASPEN will be included.|
