The transport of momentum, energy and mass is essential to the function of all non-living and living systems. This course has a particular focus on the momentum part and is designed to extend the student’s understanding of transport processes beyond the level normally associated with undergraduate education or other introductions to the subject. While acting in some sense as a review of basic concepts, this class delves into advanced materials concerned with various subjects (multi-variable systems and nonlinear problems) and tools (differential balances; boundary layer theory; solution of ordinary and partial differential equations). Many classical problems are covered, such as those of Stokes.

The objective of this course is to equip students with fundamental knowledge and mathematic skills to understand and describe the transport phenomenon of flow systems.

The breakdowns of the course content are as the followings:
1. Overview of transport phenomena
2. Review of vectors and tensors
3. Viscosity and Newtonian vs. non-Newtonian fluids
4. Mechanisms of momentum transport
5. Microscopic momentum balances and velocity distributions
6. Equation of motions
7. Velocity distributions of systems with only one independent variable such as:
a. Flow on a flat/inclined plat or in parallel plates
b. Hagen-Poiseuille flow
8. Dimensional analysis
9. Velocity distributions of systems with more than one independent variables such as:
a. Cone-and-plate viscometer and its rheology
b. Stokes flow and Stokes law
c. Flow to a rotating disk
d. A flat plate in an infinite fluid impulsively set into motion
e. Periodic oscillation of a flat plate
f. Startup of plane Couette flow
10. Boundary layer theory
11. Numerical methods (brief introduction)

With the course, graduate students will have the core ability as a chemical engineer to analyze the velocity field of a flow system and calculate associated properties such as drag forces.
