Prof. Erich Schneider Office: ETC 7.154 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org TEACHING ASSISTANT: Thomas Murphy Office: ETC 7.107 (tentative) Email: email@example.com Office Hours: Monday, 12:30 -2:00; Thursday, 3:30 -5:00 WEB PAGE: http://courses.utexas.edu/ (login to blackboard with UT EID) INSTRUCTOR OFFICE HOURS: Tuesday 1:30-2:30 PM Thursday 2:30-3:30 PM and by appointment OBJECTIVES: Introduction to the fundamental mechanisms of heat transfer; conduction, convection and radiation, and to problems where combinations of these modes occur. Applications to practical systems are stressed. Objectives are to provide understanding of the physical processes allowing heat transfer; development of analytical skills; and to increase the ability to handle realistic engineering problems. Some special topics will be treated as appropriate. At completion of the course, students should have an understanding of the physical processes governing heat transfer; be able to analyze and solve conduction, convection, and radiation transfer problems by appropriate methods to determine temperature distributions and/or energy transfer rates for steady and transient conditions; and be able to analyze and design common heat transfer equipment and devices including extended surfaces and heat exchangers. These skills are highly valued in many industries, including automobile, microelectronics, HVAC, electrical power generation, and manufacturing. manufacturing....
