MECH.3820 Heat Transfer (Formerly 22.382)

Id: 038230 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


A calculus-based engineering course providing treatment of the fundamental modes of heat transfer. Topics include: steady-state and transient heat conduction in solids; forced and natural convection; the concept of thermal boundary layer; scale analysis and dimensionless number such as Reynolds, Prandtl, and Grashof numbers; Reynolds analogy; empirical engineering convection relations; thermal radiation involving heat exchange between black and non-black body surfaces.


MECH.3810 Fluid Mechanics with a C- or better, or Spring 2020 grade of "P", and ME Majors only.
