ME 4500 - Thermal Design

3 Credit(s)

This course provides (1) coverage of the basic principles of heat transfer and a broad range of applications; (2) the blend of fundamentals and applications; and (3) a highly intuitive and practical understanding of the material by emphasizing the physics and the underlying physical phenomena involved.

This course covers conduction, convection, and radiation modes of heat transfer (fin and heat exchanger design, and heat transfer through house and commercial buildings). Both steady state and unsteady state cases are covered. Other topics include analytical and numerical solution of practical problems in heat transfer. This course is designed to take advantage of students’ intuition, making the learning process easier and more engaging. In this class, the highly technical matter will be communicated effectively in a simple yet precise language.
