MET411 Applied Heat Transfer

This course will provide students with a basic understanding of problems of heat transfer. The fundamental laws of conduction, convection, and radiation are studied using analytical and graphical methods. Graphical and empirical solutions and applications to industrial problems will also be covered plus special topics in heat exchangers, heat pipes, and industrial furnaces. Prerequisite(s): MET 212, MTH 236 or MTH 151 Credits: 3 (3,0)
