Delft University of Technology is the largest and oldest technological university in the Netherlands. Our research is inspired by the desire to increase fundamental understanding, as well as by societal challenges. We encourage our students to be independent thinkers so they will become engineers capable of solving complex problems.
About This Course
In this engineering course, you will learn about the engineering principles that play an important role in all of these and more phenomena.
Why Take This Course?
This advanced course is for engineers who want to refresh their knowledge, engineering students who are eager to learn more about heat/mass transport and for all who have fun in explaining the science of phenomena in nature.
- Microbalance and an overview of heat conduction and diffusion problems
- To calculate the pressure loss over pipe and pipeline systems
- The definition of convective transport of heat and mass transfer and how you can apply it
- The distribution of components over immiscible phase and the importance of this distribution for many applications
- The difference in flow behaviour of water and toothpaste and the reasons of this difference
- The definitions of heat radiation, black and grey bodies
- How to calculate the heat loss by radiation
Robert Mudde is professor of multiphase flow at Chemical Engineering of Delft University of Technology. He is also Director of Education of the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
Peter Hamersma is associate professor in the Dept. of Chemical Engineering at Delft University of Technology. He has extensive experience in educating undergraduate and graduate students in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
- We strongly recommend TP101x as a prerequisite for this MOOC, but if you are familiar with mass and heat transport phenomena you will be able to follow the course as well
- Basic knowledge of calculus (derivative, integral, simple differential equations)
- Thermodynamics (concepts of first and second law, properties of fluids, heat effects)
- High school physics
