Course Descriptions
MECH_ENG 395: Experimental Interfacial Phenomena

Quarter Offered

Winter : MW 2-3:20p ; K. Park


Understanding of undergraduate level fluid and solid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, and chemistry would help follow course material.


This hands-on course is for undergraduate and graduate students. At multiple length scales, various intriguing phenomena play an important role as a driving force, source of energy loss, and controlling mechanism for momentum/heat/mass transfer. To experimentally analyze these phenomena, multiple disciplines, ranging from fluid mechanics to heat transfer, thermodynamics, physical chemistry, polymer science, colloid and surfactant science, solid mechanics, optics, etc., should be used as a combined toolbox. The topics covered will include various experimental techniques to analyze interesting nano/micro/millimeter length scale interfacial phenomena.
