On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- The student will develop a fundamental and practical understanding of thermal energy transport.
- They will learn techniques required to analyse and design heat-transfer processes and systems.
- An important aspect will be the development of sound engineering judgement for recognition of salient heat-transfer issues and the capability to estimate quantitatively their effects.
|The text book Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer 7th Edition by Bergman, Lavine, Incropera, and DeWitt, John Wiley and Sons, (2011) will be a required text.|
|Graduate Attributes and Skills
||The tutorial sessions will include a group (3-4 students) design assignment spanning several sessions, with a report. The report marks will constitute 20% of the final marks.
