CENE 480 - Environmental Transport Processes

Description: Fundamental concepts of mass transfer including computation of diffusivities, use of the general mass transfer equation and the flux equations, the 2-resistance theory, pertinent dimensionless parameters, the definition of mass transfer coefficients and correlations for various geometries, equilibrium, two-phase mass transfer, mass balance for CSTR and plug flow reactors, and the design of absorbing and stripping columns. CENE 502 includes greater depth of basic content, an out-of-class laboratory exercise, and a critique and presentation of a journal article relevant to mass transfer. Co-convened with CENE 502. Letter grade only.
