Course Descriptions

The undergraduate program in chemical engineering undertakes to prepare individuals for careers in the chemical process industries. These include all industries in which chemical and energy changes are an important part of the manufacturing process, such as the petroleum, rubber, plastics, synthetic fiber, pulp and paper, fermentation, soap and detergents, glass, ceramic, photographic and organic and inorganic chemical industries.

CHE 502 - Transport Phenomena

Most of the course focuses on the derivation, simplification, and solution of the equations of change for momentum, energy, and mass transport. Mathematical determination of velocity profiles and momentum flux for isothermal, laminar flows in both steady and unsteady systems will be covered. Mathematical determination of temperature profiles and heat flux, and concentration profiles and mass flux both in solids and in laminar flows will also be covered. Boundary layer theory will be discussed. Turbulent flow theories may also be addressed.
