Course Objectives • To introduce the basic principles of heat transfer • To present a wealth of real- world engineering examples to give students a feel for how heat transfer is applied in engineering practice • To develop an intuitive understanding of heat transfer by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. • To develop an understanding of the concentration gradient and the physical mechanism of mass transfer, and also mass transfer by diffusion and convection.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Have a firm understanding of heat transfer mechanisms (conduction, convection and radiation)
  • Be able to use distinguish steady and unsteady heat transfer by conduction and the modes of convection
  • Be able to analyze various kinds of thermal systems
  • Have an understanding of mass transfer mechanisms (diffusion and convection)
  • Improve skills on how to approach and solve problems in mass and heat transfer related engineering problems
  • Recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • Be aware of the reasons of the important subjects such as global heating and climate change.
Course Content Basic concepts of heat transfer, mechanisms of heat transfer (conduction, convection, radiation), steady and transient conduction, numerical methods in heat conduction, forced and natural convection, boiling and condensation, heat exchangers, radiation heat transfer, mass transfer.
