Theoretical and computational heat and mass transfer
This course is part of the programme:
Physics (Third Level)
Objectives and competences
Course in Theoretical and computational heat and mass transfer gives basic understanding of heat and mass transfer and basic computational techniques for analyses of these phenomena. Students prepare a seminary that elaborates one of the discussed topics.
