This course focuses on the basic principles of heat transfer,
for conduction, convection, and radiation. Heat transfer is discussed in
applications involving external flow, internal flow, free convection,
boiling, condensation, heat exchanger, and radiation exchange. The students
will be able to reduce complex engineering applications involving heat
transfer to the essential and analytically analyze them, and to decide
about engineering solutions based on the analysis. Prerequisite: ChemE 330.
Within the framework of the new accreditation procedure
(ABET) it is measured whether students meet the course objectives. In this
course the course objectives will be measured with quizzes that test the
students understanding of the theory and applications, which the students
were exposed to during the lecture and by working through the weekly
homework problems, respectively. The students’ performance on these quizzes
will provide continuous feedback and provide improvement of the syllabus.
Course credit is based on
- Course Participation (Homework, Quizzes, Participation
in Class) (30%),
- 2 Midterm Exams (40%), and
- Final Exam (30%).
Quizzes are taken on Fridays and the Midterms are
scheduled on Tuesdays (see schedule below).
Examinations: Two one-hour midterm exam (openbook, closed notes) and a two-hour comprehensive final
exam (openbook, closed notes).
ŕHardcopy course textbooks are required!
All examinations are required and there will be no
make-ups. Missing an examination or not turning one in is graded as a
Weekly, assigned on Monday and due the following Monday
at the beginning of the recitation session. The Homework Assignments and Solutions
are posted at
On some of the Fridays, quizzes will be given that are
based on problems and materials from the lecture and prior homework. The
weakest quiz score will be dropped . There will be no make-ups. Missing a
quiz or not turning one in is graded as a failure (0.0).
