Department of Chemical Engineering University of California, Santa Barbara ChE120B Introduction to Heat Transfer Processes Winter 2010 MWF 2 - 3pm Professor: Joseph A. Zasadzinski [email protected] 3343 ENG II TA Jing Yu [email protected] Office Hours to be set in class Purpose of course: An introduction to conductive, convective and radiative heat transfer. Prin- ciples of mathematical analysis applied to systems of chemical engineering interest such as heat exchangers, pipelines, insulation, steady and unsteady conduction, prediction of transport parameters, scaling arguments, computer analysis. You will already need to know: ChE 120A, ChE 10, ChE 110. Diffential and Integral Calculus, elementary fluid mechanics, solutions to ordinary differential equations, elementary computer programming, partial differential equations. At the end of this course you should know: How to solve for temperature profiles in homogeneous media, how to predict the time-temperature evolution in various geometries,

Unformatted text preview: Fourier's law of conduction, 1, 2, and 3 dimensional solutions of the conduction equations, the origins of convective heat transfer, prediction and use of heat transfer coefficients, heat exchanger design and performance, optimal insulation conditions. Topic % of grade 1) Weekly homework assignments 15% 2) Midterm (graded on curve) 30% 3) Final (graded on curve) 55% 100% The midterms and final will be open book and notes. Homework is due at class time on Wednesdays, no exceptions. Do all work neatly on regular notebook paper and fasten sheets together. Scrap paper, messy work, and out of order assignments will be penalized heavily. Homework is a very significant part of the course - make sure you do it if you expect to pass the course. I expect that this course will require a substantial time commitment on the order of 8 – 10 hours outside of class to keep up with the homework....
