ERT 255/3 ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS
This course introduces principles and methods for determination and analysis of physical as well as thermal and electromagnetic properties of biological materials. The course also covers aspect of moisture determination and management of biological materials. These properties are essentials for engineers in designing process and equipment related to materials and food processing.
Ability to analyze the knowledge of sciences relate to the physical and rheological attributes and properties of biological materials.
Ability to analyze the engineering problems relate to thermal and electromagnetic properties of biological materials.
Ability to assess and formulate the solutions for engineering problems relate to water activity of biological materials for handling, storage and effective moisture management.
Ability to perform investigation as well as analyze and interpret data for engineering properties of biological materials using modern technology and equipment.
