Textbook:
Incropera, F.P.
et al
., 2006,
Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer
, 6th
Edition, John Wiley &
Sons.
Prereqs:
ME 308, Num. Anal. and MTHSC 208, with a grade of C or better
Objective of the course and student learning outcomes:
Main objective: How to solve a heat transfer problem in a rational, efficient and professional way.
Students will be able:
1.
to give and explain the meaning of the terminology and physical principles (
e.g.
What is the heat transfer
coefficient?
What is a thermal boundary layer?
What is the Fourier number?
What is a gray surface?),
2.
to distinguish the pertinent transport phenomena for any process or system involving heat transfer, and
evaluate their respective contributions (
e.g.
What are the possible heat transfer mechanisms between the
outside wall of a furnace and the surroundings?),
3.
to use requisite inputs for computing heat transfer rates and/or temperatures (
e.g.
calculate the rate of heat
loss per unit length from the surface of an insulated steam pipe passing through a room),
4.
to
develop representative models
of processes and systems,
and draw
conclusions
concerning
process/system design or performance (
e.g
. design of a satellite radiator, performance of an intercooler for
a gas turbine plant, design of the thermal monitoring system of a space suit).
Homework:
Homework will be generally posted on Blackboard each
Thursday
.
They will be due
at the
beginning of class
,
the
Thursday
of the following week
.
No late homework will be accepted
.
Makeups for homework assignments are possible
only
with a valid,
written, medical or university excuse.
It is the student's responsibility to give the professor the written excuse
