ME 3360/5360: Heat Transfer

Course description

This is a first course in heat transfer for mechanical engineering students. The course describes the study of the movement of energy due to a temperature difference and offers a detailed look at the heat equation. The three modes of heat transfer are investigated: conduction, convection, and radiation.

The topics to be covered include:
1. Introduction
2. Heat conduction equation
3. One-dimensional steady state conduction
4. Transient heat conduction
5. Fundamentals of convection
6. External forced convection
7. Internal forced convection
8. Fundamentals of heat radiation
9. Radiation heat transfer
