Heat Transfer Engineering

MET 3600 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Studies the concepts, principles, and mathematical and numerical procedures of analysis in the modes of heat transfer—conduction, convection, and radiation. The study of conduction includes 1D and 2D steady-state heat transfer in solids and transient analysis of lumped parameter systems. The study of convection covers heat transfer in internal and external fluid flows and the application of concepts and techniques for analysis and design of heat exchangers such as the LMTD and the NTU methods. Topics of radiation include irradiation, radiosity, spectral distribution, and radiation exchange between black and gray surfaces. Emphasizes use of mathematical and numerical techniques for problem solving in order to apply heat transfer theory to practical analysis and design of advanced engineering systems.
