ADVANCED HEAT TRANSFER
This page is under construction.
Department: Chemical Engineering
Semester: Fall 2001/2002
Place: seminar room
The course provides a more advanced and comprehensive treatment of heat transfer processes than is available at the undergraduate level. The objective is to develop the studentís analytical and computational skills, and his ability to apply basic principles.
This is a survey course that introduces tools for solving heat transfer problems.
The governing equations for steady and transient heat transfer processes are
developed. Emphasis is place on the application of the basic equations to engineering
Two tests (15 % each) and a Final Exam (50%)

Do the reading corresponding to a particular period before the scheduled
lecture for that period.
Homework problems are assigned during lecture and usually due one week
later. Late homework will not be accepted.
Try to solve the problems independently. The assigned problems will be
collected, graded, and returned to you in lecture.
The exams will be given on the dates announced by the
Classroom attendance is expected except in cases of illness, emergencies
or other excusable circumstances. You will be held responsible for any material
that is discussed in lecture, whether treated in the text or not.
of heat transfer problems: methodology:
is commonly accepted that there exists a preferred approach to problem solving.
In contrast to randomly addressing various aspects of a problem, a systematic
procedure involving a prescribed format is advocated. This procedure must be
used in problem solutions (both homework and exams). It consists of the
KNOWN: After carefully reading the problem, state briefly and concisely
FIND: State briefly and concisely what must be found.
SCHEMATIC: Draw a schematic of the physical system to be considered,
ASSUMPTIONS: List all simplifying assumptions that you feel to be
pertinent to the problem.
PROPERTIES: Compile material property values needed for subsequent
calculations and identify the table from which they are obtained.
ANALYSIS: Begin your analysis of the problem. Apply appropriate
conservation laws and introduce rate equations as needed. Develop the analysis
as completely as possible before substituting numerical values. Perform the
calculations needed to obtain the desired results.
COMMENTS: Where appropriate, discuss the results. Such a discussion may
include a summary of key conclusions, an inference of trends, and a critique of
the original assumptions.
The importance of following steps 1 through 4 should not be underestimated. These steps provide the opportunity to systematically think about a problem before effecting its solution. It is emphasized that the methodology is intended to be a guide to thinking and not a substitute for thinking.
