Material in 10.50.1x; undergraduate-level exposure to transport phenomena useful but not required.

Sobre este curso

Omitir Sobre este curso

Due to challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the start date for this course will be delayed to February 2, 2020. We apologize for the delay and hope to make this content available on the new start date! Meanwhile, if you have not taken 10.50.1x before or want a refresher, we strongly encourage you to take it this Fall, starting on September 9: https://www.edx.org/course/analysis-of-transport-phenomena-i-mathematical-met.

In this course, you will learn to apply mathematical methods for partial differential equations to model transport phenomena in chemical engineering. Applications include fluid flow, waves, hydrodynamic instabilities, convection, coupled heat and mass transfer, phase transformations and electrochemical transport.

The engineering applications and mathematical methods that you learn in this course will advance your career in industry or academics. You will learn how to formulate models, make scaling estimates and derive analytical approximations. There is growing demand for such mathematical skills in most technical careers and graduate programs today.

At MIT, 10.50 is a required subject for all first-year graduate students in chemical engineering, but it also attracts students from other departments. This online course is suitable for anyone interested in learning the principles of continuum modeling. Although the examples are mostly from chemical engineering, no prior knowledge is assumed about the applications, but familiarity with the mathematical methods of 10.50.1x is assumed.

There will be four chapters, each containing “lightboard” lecture videos, tutorials, and a homework assignment, followed by a final exam.

  • Fluid Mechanics (continuum mechanics, uni- and multidirectional flows, waves, surface tension and capillarity)
  • Convection (forced convection, natural convection)
  • Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics (coupled heat and mass transfer, phase separation)
  • Electrochemical Transport (neutral and charged electrolytes, electrokinetic phenomena)

¿Quién puede hacer este curso?

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
