Power generation, chemical process industries, electronics, automotive and building design are only a few of the many areas where the subject of heat transfer is heavily applied. Even sciences such as sports engineering, fitness and nutrition, where human metabolism rates are factors, require a knowledge of heat transfer to develop accurate models and estimates.
This project contains 6 modules discussing the theory, numerical methods, and modeling techniques used to analyze heat transfer problems. It covers the three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation. This section presents boundary conditions and analysis methods for both steady and unsteady analyses, and includes practical examples.
