    The goalThe aim of the course is to enable students to master the field of the transport phenomena in multiphase systems, in the way to be able to apply the acquired knowledge for the analysis of the complex problems in different types of multiphase systems. The student will also be able to calculate, analyze and design practical applications of these systems.
    The outcome1. Students acquire wider knowledge of transport phenomena of momentum, heat and mass transfer in multiphase systems (fluid-particles systems, gas-liquid and liquid-gas dispersions, dispersions of two immiscible liquids). ; 2. The student can analyze and make mathematical models of the phenomena in multiphase systems. ; 3. The student is able to practically apply theoretical knowledge to the analysis and design of various types of multiphase systems. ;
