Course Description

The important learning objective of this class is to understand the fundamental mechanisms of momentum, heat, and mass transfer phenomena, the knowledge of which will be markedly required for the thermal energy control technologies to further practice conservations of natural resources and energies for sustainable development. Heat and mass transfer processes consisting of conduction and forced/natural convection will be highlighted in detail, referring to the similarity characteristics of flow velocity, fluid temperature, and species concentration. Some topics on Reynolds stress, turbulent heat flux, and phase change will be introduced, expanding to their numerical models, together with some recent trends of high-tech heat and energy devices.
