This advanced course in " Transport Phenomena " deals with the transport of energy, mass and momentum in chemically reacting fluids.

The basic principles of these fields are here generalized and reformulated so as to be able to deal with chemically-reacting flow systems of current and future engineering interest.

Principles are developed and illustrated here for the rational design of engineering equipment (chemical reactor analysis, separation processes, multiphase transport, etc.).

Emphasis will be placed on the use of fundamental laws, and a judicious blend of experimental, analytical and numerical methods to develop required understanding and necessary mathematical models for essential portions of engineering problems involving transport processes.
