327-1201-00LTransport Phenomena I5 KP4GJ. Vermant
KurzbeschreibungPhenomenological approach to "Transport Phenomena" based on balance equations supplemented by thermodynamic considerations to formulate the undetermined fluxes in the local species mass, momentum, and energy balance equations; Solutions of a few selected problems relevant to materials science and engineering.
LernzielThe teaching goals of this course are on five different levels:
(1) Deep understanding of fundamentals: local balance equations, constitutive equations for fluxes, entropy balance, interfaces, idea of dimensionless numbers and scaling, ...
(2) Ability to use the fundamental concepts in applications
(3) Insight into the role of boundary conditions
(4) Knowledge of a number of applications.
(5) Flavor of numerical techniques: finite elements and finite differences.

327-1207-00LEngineering with Soft Materials5 KP4GJ. Vermant, L. Isa
KurzbeschreibungIn this course the engineering with soft materials is discussed. First, scaling principles to design structural and functional properties are introduced a. Second, the characterisation techniques to interrogate the structure property relations are introduced, which include rheology, advanced optical microscopies, static and dynamic scattering and techniques for liquid interfaces.
LernzielThe learning goals of the course are to introduce the students to soft matter and its technological applications, to see how the structure property relations depend on fundamental formulation properties and processing steps. Students should also be able to select a measurement technique to evaluate the properties.
Skriptslides with text notes accompanying each slide are presented.
