Before studying Electromagnetic Processing of Materials, let us see how the transport phenomena of mass, heat and momentum can be formulated in mathematical expressions. Later we will learn that a magnetic field can be described as a transport phenomenon where the governing equation of the magnetic field is the same type equation as those appearing in the transport phenomena of mass, heat and momentum, i.e., the partial differential equation of parabolic type.


Governing Equation Nusselt Number Mass Transfer Coefficient Volumetric Flow Rate Dimensionless Number
