Description

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to heat transfer fundamentals and their applications. The course introduces students to the analysis of steady-state and transient one- and multi-dimensional heat conduction. The course considers the analysis of heat transfer by convection using empirical and boundary layer approximations. Radiation heat transfer is considered with applications to multi-body radiation.

15.Radiation Heat Transfer Engineering

Contribution to Professional Competencies

Heat transfer is an essential engineering science.
Deep learning is much more important than memorizing equations.
Understanding the heat transfer phenomena and the thermal system modelling approach is more important than finding the right equation.
Heat transfer is necessary for process and product design, but this class focuses much more on the engineering science you need to bring effective thermal design into any project.

Learning Outcomes

1. Understand a thermal system, develop the schematic diagram for the system, and apply energy balance and heat transfer models to develop governing equations.
2. Set up and solve for heat transfer rates as a function of geometry and materials in 1-D conduction using various tools:
   i. Material Properties
   ii. Fourier’s Law
   iii. Circuit Analogy
3. Estimate heat transfer from Extended Surfaces, Radial Geometry, and involving Energy Generation.
4. Construct a transient heat transfer analysis, testing for the lumped capacitance approximation and understanding the assumptions.
5. Understand the approach for setting up numerical analysis of heat transfer using EES to solve simultaneous sets of equations and carry out parametric investigations.
6. Understand a thermal system with convection heat transfer, construct a schematic diagram for the system, characterize the geometry and flow conditions, and apply the appropriate convection models:
   i. Boundary layer effects, laminar and turbulent flow
   ii. Similarity solutions and non-dimensional parameters
   iii. Reynold’s analogy
   iv. Boundary conditions – derivation of energy balance
   v. Use convection correlations for Nusselt Number
7. Understand and model external forced convection heat transfer.
8. Understand and model internal forced convection heat transfer.
9. Understand and model natural convection heat transfer.
10. Understand the phenomena of boiling and condensation.
11. Understand heat exchangers and carry out analysis to select and size heat exchangers for liquid-liquid, liquid-gas, gas-gas, and condensers and boilers.
12. Understand key aspects of radiation heat transfer and solve simple problems. Understand radiative properties and models like black body, surface emission and radiosity.
13. Understand and estimate view factors and compute radiation exchange between grey surfaces.
