To add interest , we will loosely tie the course
examples and problems to fluid, heat, and mass transfer issues related
to the fabrication and operation of hard disk drives.
Grades will be determined from the scores on homework
(50 pts), two projects (75 pts each), and a final exam (75 pts). Due dates
for the projects will be mid-February and mid-March.
The text is Analysis of Transport Phenomena, by
1. Vectors and Tensors: Appendix A
Mainly covered in Chem E 512; but a brief review will be provided.
2. Fluxes and Material Properties: Chapter 1
Constitutive Equations, transport coefficients, and their interpretation.
3. Conservation Equations: §2.1ó2.8
Derivation of equations for the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy, including jump boundary conditions.
4. Scaling and Approximation Techniques: Chapter 3
Using mathematical methods (e.g. singular perturbation) and intuition to determine the essential length and time scaling behavior of transport systems.
5. Solution Methods for Conduction and Diffusion Problems: §4.1-4.8.
Fourier transform methods for solving problems on regular geometries. Numerical solutions using the Finite Element Method software FEMLab.
6. Fundamentals of Fluids: Chapter 5
