Course content

The course will give an introductory treatment of the governing laws for heat and masss transfer. The following topics are covered: Steady state and transient conduction, fundamentals and engineering treatment of convection heat transfer, heat transfer with phase change (boiling/condensation), radiation heat transfer and heat exchangers. Both analytical and numerical solution methods are presented.

Learning outcome

Knowledge:
The course provides the student with knowledge about:
- Basic heat transfer mechanisms (conduction, convection and
radiation).
- Heat transfer by conduction in solids for steady-state and
transient conditions.
- Heat transfer by convection in closed conduits and on external
surfaces.
- Heat transfer by thermal radiation.
- Convective mass transfer.
- Friction and pressure loss in boundary layer flows in closed
conduits and external surfaces.
- Heat transfer with phase change (boiling and condensation).

–The course gives the student insight about:
- Boundary layer flow, laminar and turbulent flows.
- Heat exchangers: Working principles and basic geometries.

Skills:
The course should enable the student to:
- Calculate heat transfer by conduction, convection and thermal
radiation for practical situations.
- Analyze and calculate heat transfer in complex systems involving
several heat transfer mechanisms.
- Calculate mass transfer by analogy to heat transfer.
- Perform thermal- hydraulic calculations of heat exchangers.

General competence:
The course should give the student:
- Basic competence related to other courses involving thermal energy
systems and processes.
- Skills in analyzing and calculating heat transfer in complex.
problems and heat transfer equipment.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, ordinary exercises, computer exercises and laboratory work. A minimum of 3/4 of all exercises must be accepted. If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral.

Compulsory assignments

  • Exercises, laboratory work

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
