Analysis of Transport Phenomena II: Applications

Martin Bazant, MITx

Mathematical modeling of fluid dynamics, convection, conduction, and phase transformations.

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.
