skills among the students to take design related decisions. Whatever be the
earlier conception, today a chemical engineer is expected to be able to make
complete design of a piece of chemical equipment. This note will be very useful
to undergraduate students and practitioners. A number of problems will be solved
to illustrate the concepts clearly.

This note is not meant to be
a comprehensive presentation of the subject of heat conduction, and the student
is referred to the texts referenced below for such treatments. A goal of mine,
in preparing the notes, has been to address an apparent shortcoming in many of
the current texts, in that the texts present the mathematical formulation and
analytical solution to a wide variety of conduction problems, yet they spend
little if any time on discussing how numerical and graphical results can be
obtained from the solutions.
This note covers the
following topics: Steady-State Conduction - One Dimension, Steady-State
Conduction - Multiple Dimensions, Unsteady-State Conduction, Principles of
Convection, Empirical and Practical Relations for Forced-Convection Heat
Transfer, Natural Convection Systems, Radiation Heat Transfer, Condensation and
Boiling Heat Transfer, Heat Exchangers, Mass Transfer.

mass transport, Properties of Mixtures, Diffusion flux, Fick’s law, Relation
among molar fluxes, Diffusivity, Diffusivity in liquids, Steady State Diffusion,
steady state diffusion through a stagnant film, Diffusion in solids, Convective
Mass Transfer, Convective Mass Transfer Coefficient, Application of
Dimensionless Analysis to Mass Transfer, Convective Mass Transfer Correlations,

phases, Simultaneous Heat and Mass Transfer, The Wet – bulb Thermometer.
mass transfer operations are largely the responsibility of chemical engineers,
but increasingly practitioners of other engineering disciplines are finding them
necessary for their work. The objective of this note is to provide a means to
teach undergraduate chemical engineering students the basic principles of mass
transfer and to apply these principles, aided by computational tools, to the
design of equipment used in separation processes.

discipline that deals with the mechanism, architectures, and algorithms for
controlling a process. Topics covered includes: Verbal Modeling Degrees of
