Summary

The course will deepen the fundamentals of heat transfer. Particular focus will be put on radiative and convective heat transfer, and computational approaches to solve complex, coupled heat transfer problems.

Content

Generalities and fundamentals: Heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation

Radiative heat transfer: Radiative properties of surfaces, View factors, Radiative exchange between gray and diffuse surfaces, Radiative exchange in enclosures having specular surfaces, Monte Carlo method for surface radiative exchange, Equation of radiative transfer in participating media, Radiative properties of molecular gases and particulate media, Exact solutions for 1D gray media, Approximate solution methods for 1D media, Monte Carlo method for participating media

Conductive heat transfer: Transient and steady state conduction in 0D, 1D, and 2D cases, Conduction in porous media

Convective heat transfer: Boundary layer theory, Laminar boundary layers, External and Internal convective heat transfer

Keywords

Heat transfer, radiation, Monte Carlo methods, convection and conduction
