Week 2: Diffusion in stationary media.  Visual aids (use of Power Point slides. additivity of resistances. . Week 5: General diffusion and convection equations Navier-Stokes equation. and to understand the various forms of heat and mass transfer with appropriate equations.Course Objectives/Goals: The main aim of the course is to enable our students be able to design any time of heat exchanger. Methods Of Lecture delivery/Teaching Aids:  Lecture Delivery Method  Lecturing/Teaching Method  Interactive (Discussion Method)  Tutorial Method  Teaching Aids. Week 3: Determinations of film transfer coefficients and heat exchanger design. Week 6: Problems formation and solution Week 7: Shape factors and heat exchange between radiative surfaces networks Week 8: MID-SEMESTER EXAMS Week 9: Boiling and condensation 2 . Week 4: Heat exchanger design continue. diffusion of vapours. Lecture templates –handouts)  Uploading of lecture notes into the college portal Course Outlines: Modules Week 1: Mass transfer laws and mass transfer operations.

Tutorial questions will be given out to further help the students. Only students that are physically present for each lecture will sign the attendant sheet. jacketed vessels and condensation number. Structure of the Programme/Method of Grading:  Continuous Assessment Assignment and/or Quizzes Tests  Examination 70% Total 100% 10% 20% Ground rules and Regulations: Students must read their handwritten notes before the next lecture Lateness to lectures not condoned Dosing in class automatically leads to standing up through the lecture period. Weak students are encouraged to seek help from bright students.Week 10: Difference phase of Boiling Week 11: Heat transfer coefficient for coils. Topics for Term papers/Assignments/Students activities: Assignments by way of further reading on some selected topics to help students’ understanding of the course is encouraged. pancakes. Week 12: Boiler design Week 13: REVISION Week 14: EXAMINATION Tutorials:Tutorials will be conducted along with every two weeks lectures. 3 .
