Summary

This course covers fundamentals of heat transfer and applications to practical problems. Emphasis will be on developing a physical and analytical understanding of conductive, convective, and radiative heat transfer.

Content

  1. Introduction, to types of heat transfer. Conduction, radiation, convection.
  2. One-dimensional, and two dimensional steady state, conductive heat
    transfer.
  3. Transient conductive heat transfer.
  4. Convective heat transfer for external flows.
  5. Convective heat transfer for internal flows.
  6. Natural convection.
  7. Fundamentals of boiling and bondensation
  8. Heat exchangers: Types of heat exchangers, efficiency, thermal
    design methods.
  9. Radiation: black bodies, grey bodies, form factors of surfaces, solar and infrared radiation.

Keywords

Heat transfer, conduction, convection, thermal radiation
