Conduction Heat Transfer Notes

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.

Mass Transfer Operations

The 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.
