In engineering and physics, the study of transport phenomena concerns the exchange of mass, energy, or momentum between observed and studied engineering systems. This subject is a fundamental component of disciplines involved with fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer.

Transport phenomena actually encompasses all agents of physical change in the universe

It is now considered to be a part of the engineering discipline as much as thermodynamics, mechanics, and electromagnetism. Momentum, heat (energy), and mass transport share a similar mathematical framework, and a similar analytical mechanism that carries out the exchange process.
