 LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVE:
• To understand the principles and applications of heat and mass transfer operations.

UNIT I

HEAT TRANSFER – CONDUCTION

9+6

Basic transfer processes – heat, mass and momentum – heat transfer process - conductors and insulators - conduction – Fourier’s fundamental equation – thermal conductivity and thermal resistance - linear heat flow – heat transfer through homogenous wall, composite walls, radial heat flow through cylinders and sphere – extended surfaces (fins) –– solving problems in heat transfer by conduction.

UNIT II

HEAT TRANSFER - CONVECTION

9+6

Newton Rikhman’s law – film coefficient of heat transfer - convection – free and forced convection - dimensional analysis and its application – factors affecting the heat transfer coefficient in free and forced convection heat transfer – overall heat transfer coefficient - solving problems in heat transfer by convection.


UNIT III

HEAT TRANSFER – HEAT EXCHANGER

9+6

Heat exchangers – parallel, counter and cross flow – evaporator and condensers - Logarithmic Mean Temperature Difference – overall coefficient of heat transfer – tube in tube heat exchanger, shell and tube heat exchanger, plate heat exchanger – applications of heat exchangers - solving problems in heat exchangers.

UNIT IV

HEAT TRANSFER: RADIATION

9+6

Radiation heat transfer – concept of black and grey body - monochromatic total emissive power – Kirchoff’s law – Planck’s law - Stefan-Boltzman’s law – heat exchange through non-absorbing media - solving problems in heat transfer by radiation.

UNIT V

MASS TRANSFER

9+6

Mass transfer – introduction – Fick’s law for molecular diffusion - molecular diffusion in gases – equimolar counters diffusion in gases and diffusion of gas A through non diffusing or stagnant B - diffusion through a varying cross sectional area and diffusion coefficients for gases - molecular diffusion in liquids, biological solutions and gels.

TOTAL : 75 PERIODS
