ENGS 348 - Heat Transfer

Course Description
This course introduces the fundamental concepts of heat transfer. The energy balance is extensively applied. The three modes of heat transfer are addressed: conduction, convection, radiation. Both steady state and time varying situations are considered. The energy balance is applied extensively, and physical and mathematical principles underlying the concepts of heat transfer are presented. Rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems are used in the analysis. Various aspects of heat transfer phenomena are studied in the laboratory.
