MECH 7334 - Heat Transfer

Credits: 
4
Level: 
Upper
Prerequisites: 

MECH 7114 with D or better and MECH 6334 with D or better

Description: 

This course is a study of the physical effects of heat transfer phenomena including conduction, convection, and radiation. This will include the concepts of control volume analysis, conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy, steady state and transient conduction, laminar and turbulent convection and phase change. A wide range of engineering problems will be presented to the students for solution using algebraic, differential and/or finite-difference methods. The heat transfer process will be directly applied in the design and analysis of sustainable thermal energy systems such as geothermal heat pump and thermal solar applications.
