### Aims

The aim of this module is to give the students a good understanding of the basic mechanisms of heat transfer and to equip them to solve significant engineering problems.

They will also learn about different designs of heat exchanger and how to carry out performance/design calculations.

### Learning Outcomes

(LO1) Achieve an understanding of heat transfer mechanisms; specifically conduction, convection and radiation

(LO2) Understanding the types and working principles of heat exchangers

(LO3) Develop an ability to solve steady and transient conduction problems using analytical or numerical methods

(LO4) Solve convection problems using engineering correlations

(LO5) Solve steady radiation heat transfer among grey surfaces in enclosures with up to three surfaces

(LO6) Determine the most appropriate method of analysing a particular heat exchanger and apply either the LMTD method or the effectiveness-NTU method for heat exchanger thermal analysis

### Syllabus

Conduction Fourier's law, conduction equation in Cartesian and polar co-ordinates, thermal resistances, overall heat transfer coefficient, finite difference methods for steady-state and transient conduction, fins. Convection Boundary layer flows, fluid flow similarities, Newtonian heating, forced convection on internal and external surfaces, free convection, and heat transfer correlations.

Heat Exchanger Analysis Heat exchanger design including types of heat exchanger, log-mean temperature difference method, effectiveness-NTU method.

### Teaching and Learning Strategies

Teaching Method 1 - Lecture Description: Students are provided with detailed notes. These are reviewed and enhanced in lecture classes through PowerPoint presentations. Application of theoretical knowledge is illustrated through many worked examples and in tutorial sessions that involve significant student involvement and interaction. Teaching Method 2 - Tutorial Description: Tutorial problems are designed to give students experience in applying their knowledge and understanding to practical heat transfer problems.
