TEXT BOOK: Introduction to Heat Transfer, 6th Ed., by Frank P. Incropera, David P. Dewitt,
Theodore L. Bergman, and Adrienne S. Lavine, John Wiley & Sons, 2013,
ISBN: 978-0-470-64616-8.

Course Objectives:

This course is designed to help the student:

1. Understand the basic principles and modes of heat transfer;


2. Develop ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems involving thermal
conduction with applications;
3. Develop ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems involving free and
forced convection with applications;
4. Apply energy balances and empirical correlations to model and analyze thermal systems;
and
5. Apply basic heat exchanger design and analysis techniques.

Course Outcomes: This course requires the student to demonstrate the following:

1. Describe the principles of thermal conduction, convection, and radiation;


2. Determine temperature distributions and heat transfer rates in steady-state systems
involving thermal conduction;
3. Determine temperature distributions and heat transfer rates in steady-state systems
involving both thermal conduction and thermal convection;
4. Determine temperature distributions and heat transfer rates in transient systems involving
both thermal conduction and thermal convection;
5. Apply appropriate correlations in heat transfer systems involving convection, boiling, and
condensation; and
6. Apply simple design methods for heat exchangers.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:
TESTS Will be announced in advance
FINAL TBA

Mobile Phone: Mobile phones must be switched off during lectures.


Delivery: Lectures will be delivered via PPT presentations. Slides will be posted in advance in iLearn.
Attendance: AUS policy on attendance will be implemented.
Exam/Tests: All tests and Exams are closed book; Equation sheet will be provided if necessary.
Final Exam is comprehensive.
Missing Exam/ Quiz: If a student misses a test for a legitimate reason (i.e. medical excuse), then the average
of the other tests will be used to get the grade of the missed one.
Homework: Homework assignments will be assigned throughout the semester at the end of each
chapter from the textbook, but will not be collected and graded. However, students are
urged to work seriously on the homework assignments as part of their study and practice.
Math Skills: This course requires good math skills as it involves derivations of heat equations
involving ODEs and PDEs.
