Mass Transfer Operations -I.

This Mass Transfer course will provide an overview of mass transfer operation at a basic to an intermediate level. Coverage will be relatively broad. This course applies the concepts of diffusion and interphase mass transfer to the analysis of different mass transfers such as absorption and distillation. The goal is to provide students with the theoretical/analytical background to understand mass transfer well as application and to tackle the sort of complex problems.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: B.Tech in Chemical Engineering and allied disciplines

What Will I Learn?

  • Week 1: Introduction & Overview of Mass Transfer Operation
  • Week 2: Diffusion through the variable cross-sectional area, Gas-phase diffusion coefficient measurement
  • Week 3: Mass transfer coefficient concept and classifications
  • Week 4: Mass transfer theories
  • Week 5: Introduction, classification, Sparged, and agitated vessels design, Gas dispersed
