Unformatted text preview: EML 4140 Radiation Heat Transfer Fall 2011 Time: M W F, Period 2 (8:30 am – 9:20 am) Location: WM 0100 Instructor Dr. Jörg Petrasch, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering 330 MAE ­B petrasch@ufl.edu Office hours: M W F: Period 3 (9:35 pm – 10:25 pm) Teaching Assistants To be determined Office hours To be determined Web site http://www.rel.mae.ufl.edu/teaching.html Course Material T. Bergman, A. Lavine, F. Incropera, and D. DeWitt, “Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer”, 7th Edition, John Wiley & Sons, 2011. Alternatively: F. Incropera, D. DeWitt, T. Bergman, and A. Lavine, “Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer”, 6th Edition, John Wiley & Sons, 2006. The differences between the texts are minor; either edition is fully covers the contents of the course. Course Objectives The course provides intermediate level coverage of thermal transport processes via conduction, convection, and radiation. The course emphasizes the fundamental physics of heat transfer applied to engineering analysis. Students will learn to apply conservation of energy to control volumes and express energy conservation mathematically. Upon completion of the course, students are expected to understand the fundamental physics of heat transfer, to be able to apply this physical understanding to real ­world engineering problems, to develop a mathematical formulation of the problem, and to solve the mathematical problem. Contents 1. Conduction heat transfer a. 1 ­D steady state conduction, b. 2 ­D steady state conduction, c. Transient conduction. 2. Convection heat transfer a. Governing equations, boundary layer theory, b. External flow, c. Internal flow, d. Free (natural) convection, e. Introduction to boiling and condensation. 3. Radiation heat transfer a. Introduction to radiation, b. Radiation exchange between surfaces and view factors. Catalog Description Credits: 3; Steady state and transient analysis of conduction and radiation heat transfer in stationary media. Heat transfer in fluid systems, including forced and free convection. Contribution of course to meeting the ABET professional component 4A. EML 4140 supports several program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specific ME program outcomes supported by this course include: (1) Using knowledge of chemistry and calculus based physics with depth in at least one of them (ME Program Outcome M1); (2) Using knowledge of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations (ME Program Outcome M2); (3) Being able to work professionally in the thermal systems area (ME Program Outcome M4). 4B. Mathematical Sciences (15%), Physical Sciences (15%), Engineering Sciences (70%). Relationship of course to ABET program outcomes This course achieves the following ABET outcomes. Note that the outcome number corresponds to the respective ABET outcomes (a) through (k). (a) Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering: Outcome (a), method of assessment is specially selected problems on three exams and homework. (e) Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems: Outcome (e), method of assessment is specially selected problems on three exams and homework. (i) Recognize the need for, and engage in life long learning: Outcome (i), method of assessment is several critiques of research papers in the field of Heat Transfer and critiquing professional seminars in Heat Transfer. (k) Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice: Outcome (k), method of assessment is specially selected problems on three exams and homework. Grading 1. Assignments (10 %) 2. Test 1, Conduction (20%) 3. Test 2, Convection (20%) 4. Test 3, Radiation (20%) 5. Final Exam, Comprehensive (30%) If necessary, a curve will be applied to the overall course grade. The grade will be determined, in part, by the class average and class distribution. A 10 ­point scale will be used as a starting point (i.e. A 90%, B 80%, etc.). Assignments 10 assignments will be issued. They must be handed in electronically via Sakai by the due date noted on the assignment. Late assignments handed in via email will not be accepted. Assignments may contain traditional numerical problems and/or open ­ended questions. Tests Three closed book tests covering conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer respectively will be held during the semester. Materials allowed are 1) Two letter-sized pages (one sheet) of hand-written notes per exam and 2) an SAT-approved calculator (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about/calculator.html, no smartphones, no laptops). No make-up exams will be given unless there is a valid reason consistent with University policy. Test Schedule: Test 1: 28 September 2011 Test 2: 31 October 2011 Test 3: 28 November 2011 Final Exam A final exam will be held on 15 December 2011, 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. The final exam will be comprehensive and mandatory. Materials allowed are 2) six letter-sized pages (three sheets) of hand-written notes and 2) an SATapproved calculator (http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/psat/about/calculator.html, no smartphones, no laptops). No make-up exams will be given unless there is a valid reason consistent with University policy. Class Policies 1. Regular class attendance is expected and encouraged. Each student is responsible for all of the material presented in class and in the reading assignments. Exams will emphasize treatment of material covered in lectures. Class begins promptly. 2. All homework assignments and projects are to be turned in at the beginning of the designated class period. 3. SOME collaboration is allowable on assignments, but each student is responsible for performing the bulk of his or her own homework assignment. The use of solutions from previous semesters is NOT acceptable and is considered cheating. 4. NO collaboration is allowed on tests. Academic Honesty All students admitted to the University of Florida have signed a statement of academic honesty committing them to be honest in all academic work and understanding that failure to comply with this commitment will result in disciplinary action. This statement is a reminder to uphold your obligation as a student at the University of Florida and to be honest in all work submitted and exams taken in this class and all others. Accommodation for Students with Disabilities Students requesting classroom accommodation must first register with the Dean of Students Office. That office will provide the student with documentation that he/she must provide to the course instructor when requesting accommodation. ...
