ERT 245/4 HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS
This course introduces mechanisms by which heat is transferred from one body to another. The course covers steady state and transient heat conduction, convection and radiation, also mass transfer with special address on biological systems. Emphases are placed on formulation and application of respective mathematical models of heat and mass transfer across both physical and biological bodies, as well as design of heat exchangers for application to biological systems.
Ability to analyze through application of appropriate mathematical equations, problems related to various heat and mass transfer mechanisms.
Ability to design heat exchanger for application to biosystems related problems exhibiting competence in performing energy analysis on the heat exchanger.
Ability to formulate and performheat and/ormass transfer analysis of a given problema related to biológical systems.
