|Learning Outcomes of the course unit||By the end of the course, the students should be able to:|
|Mode of Delivery||Face-to-face|
|Recommended optional program components||NONE|
· Non-Newtonian flow: Fundamental of non-Newtonianflow, basic non-Newtonian flow characteristics, basic non-Newtonianconstitutive equations.
· Multiphase flow: Fundamentals of multiphase flowincluding basic concepts, flow pattern maps, two-phase frictional pressuredrop.
· Heat transfer and Heat exchanger design methods: The overall heat transfercoefficient, heat transfer correlations, Heat exchanger types, heat exchangeranalysis, thermal design and hydraulic design.
· Boiling and condensation: Dimensionless parameters,boiling modes and correlations, physical mechanisms of condensation, film anddropwise condensation.
· Mass transfer: Mass diffusivity, ordinarydiffusion, concentration distribution in steady and unsteady mass transfer,mass transfer across a phase boundary, the binary mass-transfer coefficient formulti-component systems.
· Laboratory Work: Individual or small group experiments performed withthe use of the heat transfer/heat exchanger unit. Experiments include thedesign and analysis of the basic units of a typical heat exchanger.

|Planned learning activities and teaching methods||
The taught part of course is delivered to the students by means oflectures, conducted with the help of computer presentations. Lecture notes andpresentations are available through the web for students to use in combinationwith the textbooks.
Lectures are supplemented with laboratory work carried out in theMechanical Engineering Lab. Laboratory sessions are designed such that thestudents would appreciate the theory presented in the lectures and,furthermore, practical applications of the results are demonstrated.Students are assessed continuously and theirknowledge is checked through tests with their assessment weight.
