034014 Heat Transfer

Mechanical Engineering
034041 – Heat Transfer
Spring Semester 2016-2017
(4 credits)

Lecturer:
Prof. Ezra Elias

Description
The course is an introductory exposition to engineering heat transfer. It is part of the engineering curriculum of students in disciplines such as, mechanical, aerospace, chemical biomedical and material engineering.
Concepts of control volume analysis, conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy, conduction, laminar and turbulent, convection and radiation will be developed and applied. The problems and examples will include theory and applications drawn from a wide range of engineering problems.
Prerequisites
 Thermodynamics 1 (034035 or equivalent).
 Fluid Mechanics (034013 or equivalent).
