Conduction Heat Transfer (MANE 6630)

This course is an introduction to the mathematics of analyzing conduction heat transfer. The focus is on the heat diffusion equation and the appropriate mathematical techniques for solving it. The first part of the course involves the development of analytical solutions to the heat diffusion equation for steady-state, transient, and multidimensional problems. In the second part, numerical methods for solving more complex conduction problems are discussed.

Prerequisites: MATH 2400 or equivalent

Boundary-Layer Theory and Heat Transfer (MANE 4800)

This course introduces basic concepts of viscous flow and the governing equations (mass, momentum, and energy) related to fluid flow. The focus is on the application of basic principles of fluid mechanics to laminar and turbulent boundary layers, wherein the boundary layer equations are derived and their exact and approximate solutions are discussed. The course also covers convective heat transfer in laminar and turbulent boundary layers.

Prerequisites: MANE 4070 or MANE 4010

Heat Transfer (MANE 4730) 

This course is an introduction to heat transfer. The course discusses the three modes of heat transfer - Conduction, Convection, and Radiation. Apart from learning the fundamental aspects of heat transfer, the emphasis is also on applying this knowledge to solve a wide variety of engineering problems.

Corequisites: MANE 2710 and MANE 2720

This laboratory course offers a culminating experimental experience in thermal and fluids engineering. The theoretical background gained is consolidated and expanded by hands-on experiments and analysis of thermal and fluids systems. This lab is intended to introduce and familiarize students with a variety of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid flow phenomena in the context of the operation of widely used engineering equipment.  Both fundamental concepts, as well as practical/applied ideas, are explored.

Corequisite: MANE 4010

Thermal and Fluids Engineering I is an introductory multidisciplinary course that covers various topics in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Some of the aspects discussed in class include application of control volume, balance of mass, momentum, energy, and entropy in systems of practical importance, properties of pure materials, implementing mass and energy conservation for closed and open systems, Bernoulli's equation, fluid statics, heat transfer in external and internal flows, conduction and radiative heat transfer.

Prerequisites: ENGR 1100 and PHYS 1100. Corequisite: MATH 2400
