Synopsis:

The aim of the subject is to develop and to deepen the theoretical foundations of selected diffusion - separation processes with a focus on special issues. This course is focused on mass unit operations accompanied with mass transfer and chemical reactions. It explains the basis of mass transfer and also behavior and phenomena of more complex multiphase or non-isothermal systems and equipments in which chemical or biochemical reactions. The course enlarges knowledge obtained in the basic similar course of the study branch "Process engineering“ or creates mass transfer unit operation basis for student studying various specializations such as energetic, vehicle industry, cooling, ecology, waste water and effluent gas treatment, nanotechnology, material and medical science etc. On the basis of dissertation topic the higher attention will be focused on the corresponding themes.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

•Theoretical foundations - definitions of concentrations, mass fluxes, calculation of diffusivities, basic balance

equations, steady and unsteady diffusion, turbulent diffusion, convective mass transfer and mass transfer between phases.
