Introduction to Heat Transfer
TTh 9:30-10:45 AM in Goessmann 20

[syllabus] | [homework]

This course is designed to be an introductory course to engineering heat transfer. Concepts
including control volume analysis, conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy, conduction,
laminar and turbulent convection, phase change and radiation will be developed and applied. The
problems and examples will include theory and applications drawn from a wide range of engineering
design and manufacturing problems.

Introduction (thats this one)



Incropera, F. P., and DeWitt, D. P., Introduction to Heat Transfer, 5th Edition, Wiley, New York, 2007.

The course grade will be based on two midterm exams and a final exam with the following weight:
Homework             15%
Hour Exams (2)      50%
Final Exam              35%

A set of homework problems will be assigned roughly once a week
during lectures. You should work through these problems carefully
as they are essential for your learning of the material. The problems
will be typically collected and graded on Tuesdays. Over the
course of the semester you will receive several computational heat
transfer homework assignments which will require the use of a
software package such as EES, Matlab, C++, visual basic or even
Excel. [homework solutions page]
