This introduction to transport phenomena in materials engineering balances an explanation of the fundamentals governing fluid flow and the transport of heat and mass with their common applications to specific systems in materials engineering. It introduces the influences of properties and geometry on fluid flow using familiar fluids such as air and water.

Covers topics such as engineering units and pressure in static fluids; momentum transport and laminar flow of Newtonian fluids; equations of continuity and conservation of momentum and fluid flow past submerged objects; turbulent flow; mechanical energy balance and its application to fluid flow; transport of heat by conduction; transport of heat by convection; transient heat flow; heat transport by thermal radiation; mass transport in the solid state by diffusion; mass transport in fluids. Includes extensive appendices.
