Title Heat Transfer
Field of Study Engineering
Type Academic course
Credits 3
Contact hours 45
Schedule Session A & B
Course code MEE4001
Description

The transport mechanisms of heat can be classified as conduction, convection, radiation, and combination of these. With the concept of transport mechanisms of heat, the method of setting-up energy balance equation for given engineering systems and the mathematical solution of each energy balance equation would be studied. The applications of energy balance equations to the design of heat transfer equipment would also be studied. This course is designed mainly for mechanical engineering major students.
