Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Extend students' knowledge acquired in previous studies of heat and mass transfer. The focus is placed on the formulation and methods for solution steady and nonsteady processes.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject matter includes heat and mass transport mechanisms. The individual themes are, in agreement with the supervisor, developed in more detail according to the specific focus of the doctoral dissertation.
