How can you reduce the energy loss of your home? What is the underlying science of energy loss in pipes? Which heat and mass transfer problems do we have to tackle to make consumer products?

In this engineering course, you will learn about the engineering principles that play an important role in all of these and more phenomena. You will learn about microbalances, radiation, convection, diffusion and more and their applications in everyday life.

This advanced course is for engineers who want to refresh their knowledge, engineering students who are eager to learn more about heat/mass transport and for all who have fun in explaining the science of phenomena in nature.

Start the course anytime, and complete it at your own pace!

What you will learn:

  • Microbalance and an overview of heat conduction and diffusion problems
  • To calculate the pressure loss over pipe and pipeline systems
  • The definition of convective transport of heat and mass transfer and how you can apply it
  • The distribution of components over immiscible phase and the importance of this distribution for many applications
  • The difference in flow behaviour of water and toothpaste and the reasons of this difference
  • The definitions of heat radiation, black and grey bodies
  • How to calculate the heat loss by radiation

The course materials used in this MOOC are available on TU Delft OpenCourseWare and can be viewed and downloaded for free. If you enrol for the MOOC, you will be introduced to up to date techniques in web lectures and webinars. Also you will apply each technique to a case with fellow learners. Ultimately, the combination of these techniques provides a coherent analysis of the problem.
