Heat Transfer Fundamentals
In Heat Transfer Fundamentals , you'll learn ...
- Definitions of key terms related to heat transfer
- How to solve heat conduction problems using equivalent resistance formulas
- How to use the overall heat transfer coefficient when both convection and conduction heat transfer occurs
- How to calculate radiant heat transfer rates and emissivity
The transfer of heat is an integral part of many industrial processes. Moreover, heat transfer affects our everyday lives-from an oven heating our dinner to the wind cooling us on a hot summer day. Thus, it is important that engineers understand how to apply the basic principles of heat transfer to solve real-world problems.
Heat transfer occurs when there is a temperature difference between two bodies. There are three modes of transferring heat: conduction, convection, and radiation. Heat is capable of being transferred through solids and fluids by conduction, through fluids by convection, and through empty space by radiation. This course covers the fundamentals of heat transfer, including conduction, convection, and radiation.
