ME 242 Theoretical and Numerical Heat Transfer

The course is focused on advanced concepts of heat transfer with particular emphasis on numerical tools for solving practical heat transfer problems. Topics covered: 1-D and 2-D steady-state conduction, 0-D and 1-D transient conduction, conservation equations, boundary layer concepts, energy and momentum transfer in laminar and turbulent flows, external and internal forced convection, natural convection, heat exchangers, thermal radiation, transport properties and mass diffusion.
