Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After the course the student will be able to
1. derive transport equations from the entropy production
2. solve the Nernst-Planck equation in several different cases
3. evaluate and solve transport problems on electrodes
4. solve transport problems in porous, ion exchange and liquid membranes
