The course is intended to revisit the conservation laws as a primer for the study of the transport phenomena and thermodynamics. Both macroscopic and microscopic approaches in applying these laws will be dealt with. The students will learn how to make mass-, momentum- and energy-balances by going through the course.
Week 1 : Introduction to linear algebra (vectors, tensors, and matrix operations) Week 2 : Introduction to linear algebra (vectors, tensors, and matrix operations) Week 3 : Introduction to numerical methods (roots of nonlinear algebraic equations, regression, interpolation etc.) Week 4 : Introduction to numerical methods (numerical integration/differentiation, solution of ordinary and partial differential equations) Week 5 : Macroscopic approaches to mass, momentum and energy balances Week 6 : Microscopic approach to mass balance Week 7 : Microscopic approach to momentum balance Week 8 : Microscopic approach to energy balance
