MECH 7334 - Heat Transfer of Sustb Energy, 4 Credits
Prerequisite(s): MECH 7114 with D or better
Corequisite(s): MECH 6334
This course is a study of the physical effects of heat transfer phenomena including conduction, convection, and radiation. This will include the concepts of control volume analysis, conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy, steady state and transient conduction, laminar and turbulent convection and phase change. A wide range of engineering problems will be presented to the students for solution using algebraic, differential and/or finite-difference methods. The heat transfer process will be directly applied in the design and analysis of sustainable thermal energy systems such as geothermal heat pump and thermal solar applications.
