Advanced fluid mechanics, particle technology, transient conduction and radiation.
The course includes the following topics: Fluid Mechanics (Shusheng Pang, 21L, 2 Assignments, Exam) • Momentum and Navier-Stokes Equations• Non-Newtonian fluids • Gas-liquid two phase flow • Filtration • Mixing Particles (Daniel Holland, 7L, 1 Assignment, Exam) • Particles size distribution, and size measurement• Single-particle fluid mechanics • Fluidisation Heat Transfer (Daniel Holland, 8L, Exam) • Thermal radiation • Heat transfer from finned surfaces • Unsteady conduction
KNOWLEDGE OUTCOMESSound understanding of fundamentals of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Application of fluid mechanics fundamentals to complex flows including non-Newtonian fluids, two-phase flow, filtration and mixing. Understanding of fundamental challenges of particle processing. Apply particle characterisation techniques. Evaluate heat transfer problems to determine significant heat transfer resistances and simplifications of problems. Apply numerical methods to heat transfer problems. Develop models of heat transfer for simple problems. TRANSFERABLE SKILLS DEVELOPED: Communicating complex concepts to peers. Produce clear, concise reports on complex material. Design and document spreadsheets to solve complex problems.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.

CONCERNSStudents with concerns about the course should contact Daniel Holland, the 2nd Pro Director of Studies, or the Head of Department.GENERAL POLICIES OF THE DEPARTMENTStudents may obtain the general policies of the University from the website. For example:Special considerations: http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/study/special-consideration/ Academic Appeals of Assessments: Students with concerns about assessment processes or grades should be advised to speak first with the relevant lecturer. If the matter cannot be resolved, then the student should meet and discuss the matter with the Head of Department/School and thereafter follow the procedures outlined in the University procedures http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/media/documents/postgraduate-/Academic-Appeals-Grievances-Principles-Procedures.pdf and regulations http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/regulations/general-regulations/academic-appeals-and-grievance-regulations/Reconsideration of grades: If you are concerned that your final grade may be incorrect it is suggested (for CAPE) that you make an informal query to the course coordinator, but you may follow the official procedures: http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/study/examinations/result-dates-and-appeals/ Disabilities: http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/disability/
