DESCRIPTION OF COURSES
AE 630 / PHT 630 HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER (3L+0P) I
To acquaint and equip the students with the principles of heat and mass transfer and its applications in food processing.
Modes of heat and mass transfer: uni- and multi-directional heat conduction; principles of conservation; boundary layer and turbulence: momentum and energy equations.
Convective heat transfer in food processing systems involving laminar and turbulent flow heat transfer in boiling liquids, heat transfer between fluids and solid foods.
Radioactive heat transfer and its governing laws, its applications in food processing.
Mass transfer; heat and mass transfer analogy; molecular diffusion of fluids; mass transfer operations; absorption; adsorption; extraction-exchange and leaching.
