Learning Outcomes

At the completion of the course students will be able to:

  • Develop a deep physical understanding of the subject of Convective Heat Transfer
  • Seek mathematical solutions (complete and integral) to convective heat transfer problems that involve a variety of boundary conditions in laminar flows.
  • Attack turbulent heat transfer problems using turbulent Prandtl number and other relevant concepts.
  • Establish the cooling requirements of and potential methods to achieve them for modern electronic systems.
  • Solve some industrial heat transfer problems.
  • Apply the knowledge to heat exchanger design.
