Advanced transport phenomena full notes ebook free download pdf
THIS ENTIRE CHAPTER IS INTRODUCTORY in much the same way as Appendix A is. In Appendix A, I introduce the mathematical language that I shall be using in describing physical problems. In this chapter, I indicate some of the details involved in rep-resenting from the continuum point of view the motions and deformations of real materials. This chapter is important not only for the definitions introduced, but also for the viewpoint taken in some of the developments. For example, the various forms of the transport theorem will be used repeatedly throughout the text in developing differential equations and integral balances from our basic postulates.
