Description
Content

What does mass diffusion, thermal conduction, viscosity, permeability, and electrical conductance have in common? In this book you will get an overview of the most important terms within transport phenomena. You will learn and realize important analogies between Fick's law of diffusion, Fourier's law of heat conduction, Newton's law of viscosity, Darcy's law of permeability, and Ohm's law of electrical conductance. Illustrating graphics as well as clarifying SI-unit explanations will help your understanding and learning on a bachelor or master of science level.
