Teaching Period (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 


Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Heat conduction: The student can formulate heat transfer problem in 1d and utilize 1d fin theory.

Convective heat transfer: The student can use basic theories and correlation formulae to estimate e.g. cooling/heating effect of water or air on solid hot/cold objects.

Application of theory: The student can apply theory to explain how a basic heat exchanger functions. 

Numerical solution: The student gains ability to use basic numerical methods in Matlab to simple heat transfer problems.

Data analysis: The student gains ability to carry out data analysis on convective heat transfer problems.



Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course offers a first systematic walk through to heat transfer phenomena. The student learns the physics of conduction, convection and can apply this knowledge to a case study investigated during the course.  Additionally, the student will learn to use  short Matlab programs to compute, visualize and analyze heat transfer problems.
