1.1 Introduction

Classical transport phenomena is concerned with the exchange of energy, mass, or momentum between systems of engineering interest and is usually taught in courses on fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer. Though now ranking along with thermodynamics, mechanics, and electro magnetism as one of the cornerstones of engineering education, a course or text devoted exclusively to transport phenomena became popular only in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s [13]. Over the past several decades, the unifying transport concept has revolutionized the way engineering science is taught. Momentum, energy, and mass transport can now be grouped together due to their similar mathematical framework, the similar ...
