Language of instructionEnglish

AbstractThis course will teach the field of heat transfer by convection. This heat transport process is intimately tied to fluid dynamics and mathematics, meaning that solid background in these disciplines are necessary. Convection has direct implications in various industries, e.g. microfabrication, microfluidics, microelectronics cooling, thermal shields protection for space shuttles.
ObjectiveAdvanced introduction to the field of heat transfer by convection.
ContentThe course covers the following topics:
1. Introduction: Fundamentals and Conservation Equations 2. Laminar Fully Developed Velocity and Temperature Fields 3. Laminar Thermally Developing Flows 4. Laminar Hydrodynamic Boundary Layers 5. Laminar Thermal Boundary Layers 6. Laminar Thermal Boundary Layers with Viscous Dissipation 7. Turbulent Flows 8. Natural Convection.
