Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Heat transfer is a key technology in design of energy device and chemical plant. In this lecture, heat transfer in solid and flow field will be introduced by explaining basic equations on energy balance, and solving related problems. Overview of conduction, convection, free convection, heat transfer with change of phase (boiling and condensation), heat exchangers and radiation will be discussed.
