 Aims
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } After the course, the student will be able to: apply the basic relations for the three heat transfer mechanisms (conduction, convection and thermal radiation) to steady situations determine steady heat transfer rates for internal and external flows, using correlations and graphs determine unsteady temperature distributions inside objects using theoretical relations and graphs explain how various relations can be derived from the conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy
 Content
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } This is a part of Semester 6 of the Bachelor Mechanical Engineering (UT-VU) See here for the compete description of this semester. Content Three mechanisms of heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation) are introduced in the context of engineering applications. Steady-state and transient conduction problems are treated for one-dimensional, axisymmetric, and spherically symmetric problems. Convective heat transfer is also presented in great detail, closely interacting with the course â€˜fluid dynamic. Non-dimensional groups are explained and derived leading to some non-dimensional groups such as the Reynolds number, the Prandtl number, the Nusselt number and the Biot number. Please note: This course takes place in Amsterdam and is only accessible for BSc UT-VU ME students.
