Overview

Heat transfer is a necessary process in virtually all forms of energy generation and use; from coal fired to nuclear power stations, from automobile engines to rocket motors, from refrigerating cold stores to air conditioning space vehicles. A sound knowledge of this field is essential for all mechanical engineers.

This course further develops the basic physics concepts and principles learned in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics to heat transfer in its three different modes. The three modes are conduction, convection (free and forced) and radiation. Application of these principles to practical industrial applications is an important aspect of this course.
