Course Description

An introductory course on the physical principles of heat conduction. Coverage included mathematical and numerical methods to solve 1D, 2D and 3D steady-state and transient heat conduction problems.

Topics

  • Conduction review (1D, steady state and lumped-parameter analysis)
  • Bessel equations/functions
  • Separation of variables
  • Superposition
  • Laplacian methods
  • Finite differences

Learning Outcomes

  1. Identify, formulate, and solve conduction heat transfer problems related to electronics cooling, heat exchangers, manufacturing processes and other engineering applications.
  2. Use the techniques, skills, and modern computational engineering tools necessary for solving advanced multidimensional and transient conduction heat transfer problems.
