APPLIED THERMODYNAMICS AND HEAT TRANSFER

OBJECTIVES

 

  • Experimental analysis, including the application and heat transfer through solids, fluids, and vacuum.
  • Determination of Convection, conduction, and radiation heat transfer in one and two dimensional steady and unsteady systems.
  • To determine convective heat transfer coefficient for free and forced.
  • To Determine surface emissivity of a test plate
  • Temperature distribution of study and transient heat conduction through plane wall, cylinder and fin using numerical approach.
