The course of Heat and Mass Transfer in Metallurgy deals with various principles of fluid their flow and heat and mass transfer. As any metallurgical process involves fluids, heat and mass transfer this course aims to develop a basic understanding about the properties of fluids. Heat transfer is involved in metallurgical engineering processes like casting, welding, metal extraction by pyrometallurgy or heat treatment of materials. The heat transfer modes namely conduction, convection and radiation are based on fundamental laws and its knowledge enhances the understanding of energy transfer in metallurgical processes. This will enable the students to apply basic principles of fluid mechanics and heat transfer to understand its role and to analyze and solve problems.

Course Outcome

After successful completion of the course students should be able to:

  1. Explain Newton’s law of viscosity and classify fluid and fluid flow.
  2. Derive mass and momentum balance equations and use it for applications of flow measurement.
  3. Derive equation of heat conduction, convection and radiation for various conditions and solve problems.
  4. Explain different mass transfer modes and derive their equations.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
