Current Courses


MEEN 3330: Fundamentals of Heat Transfer

This course presents an overview of principal mechanisms of heat transfer – conduction, convection, and radiation and introduces preliminary modeling of heat transfer systems. Topics covered in this course are fundamental laws of conduction, convection and radiation, application of conduction and forced convection to heat exchangers, discussion of theory and applications of conduction, forced and natural convection, etc.

Terms taught:

M W F 10:00 am – 10:50 am, Engineering Hall 323.
M W F 12:00 pm – 12:50 pm, Engineering Hall 323.

 

Other Courses


MEEN 6931: Numerical Methods in Heat and Fluid Flow

This is an upper-level graduate course aimed at students who have already taken at least one intermediate or advanced fluids/thermodynamics/heat transfer course along with a course on numerical methods. This course introduces various finite difference and finite volume approaches for heat and fluid flow problems, stability and convergence analysis of some of the algorithms, and various related comptuational issues.
