Introduction and basic concepts

Introduction to conduction - governing equations, properties

One-dim. steady-state conduction - plane wall, cylinders

One-dim. steady-state conduction - fin analysis

Two-dim. steady-state conduction - Separation of variables, graphic method

Transient conduction - Lumped capacity method, semi-infinite solid

Introduction to Convection - concept, fluid mechanics review

Introduction to Convection - boundary layer, momentum and heat transfer analogy

External flow - flat plate (similarity solution)

External flow - cylinders in crossflow, flow across banks of tubes

Internal flow - flow conditions, fully developed flow

Internal flow - laminar flow in circular tubes, heat transfer enhancement

Free convection - physical concepts, governing equation

Heat Exchangers -analysis, effectiveness, NTU method
