Competency aims

The aim of the course is to provide students a competence to analyze heat transfer problems in engineering applications.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, 1.Students understand the different modes of heat transfer and their applications. 2. As a result of validation analyses using FEM, students will learn how to model heat transfer problems on COMSOL Multiphysics FEM software 3. Students will also be able to model time based (transient) heat transfer problems based on the Lumped sum capacitance method that has a wide applications in engineering design, cooling analysis and more 4. The students will understand convection heat transfer coefficient analysis within thermal boundary layers and conduct analysis of local and average heat transfer coefficients 5. Students will understand basics of radiation and analyses problems on solar radiation
