With the advancement in manufacturing technology in past few decades, the trend towards miniaturization has accelerated in several industries. In chemical process industries, the viability of compact heat exchangers, microreactors for process intensification is being explored because of small diffusion lengths, high interfacial area density and relatively safe operation. Most of these equipments involve multiphase flows and their design requires a fundamental understanding of heat, mass and momentum transport in multiphase flow in microchannels. This course is aimed at introducing the students with the fundamental principles as well as recent developments in the area of multiphase flow at the small scale.
