The theory of steady state and transient heat conduction in solids is developed and applied. The concepts of Biot and Fourier numbers are covered and their applications are studied. The principals of thermal radiation with application to heat exchange between black and non-black body surfaces are studied. The use of radiation networks (electrical network analogy) is examined. Surface radiation properties are extensively covered. Design projects are integrated into the course.
