CM3110 Transport/Unit Operations 1
Develop an understanding of the processes of momentum transfer (fluid mechanics) and heat transfer. Presents the basic equations of microscopic momentum and heat transfer, along with macroscopic transport equations that can be used in engineering analysis.
Semesters Offered: Fall, Spring (different instructor) (FAM Fall only 2002-2004, sabbatical, 2006-2011, sabbatical, 2013-2017 (12 offerings))
Pre-Requisite(s): CM 2120 and (MA 3520 or MA 3521 or MA 3530 or MA 3560) and MA 3160 and PH 2100
CM3120 Transport/Unit Operations 2
Mass transfer fundamentals applied to unit operations. Topics include Fick's Law, continuity equation with reaction and mass transfer co-efficients. Transient heat transfer and numerical solution are covered. Applications include absorption, distillation, extraction, adsorption, and membrane separations.
Semesters Offered: Spring (FAM Spring 2019)
Pre-Requisite(s): CM3110 and CM 2120 and (MA 3520 or MA 3521 or MA 3530 or MA 3560)
CM3215 Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering Laboratory
This course will be an introduction to basic laboratory methods and instrumentation used in the measurement of fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer.
