ODTUCLASS will be used for all announcements and course materials, please follow it regularly!

 

Course Objective

At the end of this course, students will learn

• modes of heat transfer and perform energy balances on systems that involve conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer,   

• how to apply the conduction equation to a given problem to determine the temperature distribution and heat fluxes in objects,   

• understand the convective transfer equations and apply them to a heat transfer problem,   

• how to identify, formulate and solve problems involving external and internal convection heat transfer for various surface geometries,   

• gain hands-on experience in heat transfer experimentation through a number of laboratory tests.   

 

 

Course Content

1-D steady heat conduction, thermal resistances, extended surfaces. 2-D steady heat conduction, shape factor, finite difference methods. Transient conduction, lumped capacitance method, 1-D transient conduction, product solutions. Boundary layers, laminar and turbulent flow, convective transfer boundary layer equations, dimensionless parameters, Reynolds analogy. External flow, empirical correlations. Internal flow correlations. Free convection.
