Heat transfer is perhaps the most useful aspect of thermodynamics with related problems being found in all branches of engineering. This course concentrates on conduction, radiation and convection. In each part there is a thorough coverage of the fundamentals as well as selected applications.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||10 credits (5 ECTS credits)|
Fourier's Law applied to steady and non-steady conditions.
Convection: Forced and natural.
Radiation heat transfer: The Stefan-Boltzmann Law, view factors, the summation and reciprocity rules.
Heat exchangers: Mode of operation and design calculations.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
Class test will take place towards the late of the term and feedback will be provided shortly after the class test.
a) Students can receive feedback on their progress with the Course on request at the tutorial sessions.
b) Class exam feedback will be uploaded at MyAberdeen and will be emailed to the whole class at their University email address shortly after the class test (before the end of term) which will be useful for preparing their final exam.
c) Generic exam feedback will be uploaded at MyAberdeen and will be emailed to the whole class at their University email address
d) Students requesting individual feedback on their exam performance should make an appointment within 3 weeks of the publication of the exam results.
