Course description

Topics include the following: steady and unsteady heat conduction; forced and free convection; external and internal flows; radiation heat transfer; and heat exchangers.

Outcome 1: Become proficient with energy balances to develop models of heat flow in various systems.

Outcome 2: Learn terminology and physical principles of heat transfer.

Outcome 3: Develop broad understanding of basic modes of heat transfer (conduction, convection, radiation) and become proficient at predicting heat transfer rates for these modes including computing the heat transfer coefficient for forced and natural convection.

Outcome 4: Become proficient at computing radiative exchange between surfaces.

Outcome 5: Apply basic heat exchanger theory to predict heat exchanger performance for standard designs.
