A treatment of conductive, convective, and radiative energy transfer using control volume and differential analysis and prediction of transport properties. Crosslisted as NE 332/332H
- Energy balance in thermal systems
- One-dimensional steady and transient conduction
- Introduction to numerical solution techniques
- Analogy of momentum, heat, and mass transfer: order of magnitude analysis
- Forced convective heat transfer in internal and external flows
- Heat exchangers
- Natural convection
- Ideal (black body) radiative exchange
- Gray body radiative exchange
The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:
- Perform an energy balance to heat-transfer systems to solve engineering problems.
- Invoke the proper use of conductive, convective, and radiative modes of heat transfer to analyze single- and multi-mode thermal engineering problems.
- Predict the thermal response of engineering systems to energy transfer mechanisms for transient and steady-state situations.
- Use a variety of engineering correlations to heat transfer analyses.
- Design and analyze thermal and fluidic engineering components and systems, in particular, heat exchangers.
