Transport Phenomena Laboratory

Transport Phenomena Laboratory has been developed as an undergraduate teaching laboratory. The main focus is to demonstrate the fundamental concepts in heat, mass and momentum transport. Students are encouraged to learn through hands-on experiences. Rankine Cycler is the latest arrival to the lab. Students are able to understand the fundamentals of steam power generation and become familiar with the associated thermodynamic principles and efficiencies of the Rankine power cycle. The laboratory is further equipped with the following teaching units,
• Flow measurement unit
• Centrifugal pump demonstration unit
• Equipment test bench to study analogy between fluid friction and heat transfer
• Apparatus for determining heat loss from bare and lagged pipes
• Computer controlled gaseous mass transfer and diffusion coefficient unit
• Computer controlled liquid mass transfer and diffusion coefficient unit
