Summary Course Description:
This course introduces the student to several fundamental concepts and a variety of engineering applications of heat transfer. The primary focus is to provide a good understanding of the principles associated with the three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation, and to use these principles to solve a wide range of practical heat transfer problems. The key mechanisms of heat transfer are illustrated and applied through the solution of a variety of in-class example problems and in the homework assignments.
Last Taught: The last time I taught this course was during Spring 2012. Although this was definitely a few years ago, the first course in Heat Transfer at most universities does not change much over the years -- so I expect that much of the material here is still quite pertinent. In addition, I have checked/updated many of the Matlab demos so that they work nicely with the newer version of Matlab. Thus, I think you will still find this material quite useful...
