CHPH 315 - Mass Transport


This course introduces how to mathematically model control volumes in the context of mass transfer. We start with Fick’s Law and discuss both diffusive and convective mass transport, the calculation of mass transfer coefficients and how to solve mass transfer rates in various systems. We move into calculating mass transfer rates for more complex geometrical systems with correlations. We also introduce the design of several units that center on mass transfer concepts including the distillation and absorption columns, and extraction and membrane processes. Prerequisite(s): Grade of C or higher in CHPH 215   Corequisite(s): MATH 310  or MATH 337   (must be completed with grade of C or higher if taken as pre-requisite)
