Course Description

This lecture is designed for the students who want to gain their knowledge and understanding on transport phenomena associated mainly with convective flows with chemical reactions. It starts with a brief review of undergraduate level subjects followed by more advanced discussion on heat and mass transfer with reactions. The reactions of interest in the lecture include combustion (oxidation), reforming and electrochemical reactions. As the reactions may proceed on catalysts, the discussion covers the catalytic surface reactions, reactions in porous media as well as gas phase reactions. The students are expected to have learned fundamentals of Fluid dynamics, Thermodynamics and Heat transfer during their undergraduate courses.


Grade evaluation is based on attendance, short reports and one's term paper submitted at the end of the semester.

Course Goals

Starting from the basic heat and mass transfer, the lecture aims to expand the students’ comprehensive understanding on transport phenomena in physicochemical processes including thermochemical and electrochemical reactions.
