COURSE OBJECTIVES:
This course is designed to teach junior-level chemical engineering students the
fundamentals of heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation. Analysis of
the following will be covered by the course:
1) situations involving one, two and all three modes of heat transfer,
2) heat transfer equipment (shell and tube, concentric pipe, and extended surface heat
exchangers), and
3) other heat transfer-intensive processes.

PROBLEM SET (GROUP):
Problem Sets will be assigned throughout the semester, with due dates being usually 1
week after assignment. Late solution papers will not be accepted. Problem Sets will
be returned promptly.

QUIZZES:
Approximately ten-to-thirteen (10-13) 10-minute quizzes will be given during the
semester. The quizzes will be completed in- class.

EXAMS:
The regular exam format will be open books (Main reference and Perrys Handbook
ONLY), closed notes/gadgets for the calculations part and a closed book(s) part to test
general knowledge and retention of concepts. Final Exam will be given in a BOARD
EXAM type format (only Perrys Handbook is allowed). Both regular exams and
Finals duration is 3 hrs.
Tentative exam dates are:

Exam 1 TBS, mid-Sep Steady State and Transient Conduction


Exam 2 TBS, mid-Oct Radiation, Radiation Exchange
Exam 3 TBS, mid-Nov Convection, External/Internal Flows, Heat
Exchangers
Final Exam TBS, first week-Dec Cumulative (Perrys Handbook ONLY))

HEAT TRANSFER EQUIPMENT DESIGN TEAM PROJECT:


A group project will be assigned in early November, due on the last week of
November when the teams will present or defend their work for 10-15 mins. Teams
will be self-selected and consist of 5 or 6 students. The project will focus on applying
knowledge to the design and retrofit of a set of heat transfer equippment. More
information on project description, report, and calculations will be given with the
assignment.

WEBSITE:
Our class website for announcements and problem set postings will be emails or
