Advanced Heat Teansfer National Taiwan University
NOTE: This course is an ADVANCED LEVEL heat transfer, and also serves as one of the required subjects of the qualifying exam for Ph.D. students in the Mechanical Engineering Department. Heavy course load is to be expected.
NOTE: The lectures of this class will be given in English. However, you can ask or raise questions in Mandarin. My answers or replies will be in English during class, and in Mandarin/English after class based on your preferences.
NOTE: Class meets on Thursdays 14:20--17:20, ten to fifteen minute break from 15:50 to 16:00 or 16:05 for each meeting.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a 3-unit half-year elective course on intermediate to advanced level conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer directed towards graduate students and undergraduate upperclassman audiences. This course also serves as one of the required subjects of the qualifying exam for Ph.D. students in the Mechanical Engineering Department. Heavy course load is to be expected. Three major topics are to be discussed in this class. They are: 1. Steady and unsteady 1D and multidimensional conduction heat transfer. 2. Laminar/turbulent forced and natural convection heat transfer of internal and external flows with additional focuses on boiling and condensation phenomena. 3. Radiation heat transfer for black, gray diffuse, and gaseous bodies. Our discussions for each of the topics are to be directed towards two directions: 1. Classical mathematical and analytical techniques. 2. Modeling and approximation methods. Active class participation and discussions are greatly encouraged.
1. To understand the underlying physics and mechanisms governing the conduction, convection, and radiative heat energy transfer processes in general engineering systems from a macroscopic continuum point of view. 2. To acquire the classical mathematical tools and techniques required in analyzing conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer problems. 3. To develop physical intuition and insights towards heat transfer problem solving so that general complex engineering heat transfer problems can be described by simple physical models and solved with minimum mathematical efforts, i.e., "back of the envelope calculations."
