AGEN 344: Biological and Environmental Transport Processes

AGEN 344
Prereqs: BSEN 244 or MECH 200; MATH 221; MECH/CIVE 310 or CHME 332 or parallel; or permission.
Introduction to concurrent transport of energy and mass in biological and environmental processes. Modes of heat transfer, steady and non-steady state heat conduction, convective heat transfer, radiative heat transfer, and heat transfer with phase change. Equilibrium, kinetics, and modes of mass transfer, diffusion, dispersion, and convective mass transfer. Soil freezing and thawing, energy and mass balances of crops, diffusivities of membranes, photosynthesis, human and animal energy balances, and respiration.
