Individual consultations


The subject deepens the knowledge of heat transfer, mass and momentum. It uses the terms viscosity, thermal conductivity and diffusivity and by means of them, the differential balance of transmission phenomena. It shows the possibilities of solving these equations and documents them to describe the processes in nature and in technical devices. Emphasis is placed on understanding the problem, its mathematical formulation and designing solutions using modern computer resources. Knowledge of the principles of unit operations, good orientation in differential calculus, spatial imagination and advanced PC user skills are assumed. Topics for detailed study will be selected based on the focus of the dissertation.
