Heat and Mass Transfer (ENME 601)

Offered By:  Engineering and Materials Science Faculty

Course Prerequisites

Description

The course is structured into two parts.

The study of the principal mechanisms of heat transfer, namely; conduction, convection and radiation, is the object of the first part of this course. In this light, this part complements thermodynamics. Thermodynamics tells us how much work we are doing and what the efficiency of the process is, heat transfer tells us how long it takes, in other words, power.

In this course, we will examine in some detail each heat transfer mechanism, at first individually, then in a coupled fashion
