CONDUCTION HEAT TRANSFER
To provide the student with an understanding of the classical and general approach to heat conduction within stationary homogeneous materials through the analysis of one- and multi-dimensional steady-state and transient system with homogeneous and non-homogeneous boundary conditions. This includes analytical and numerical solutions to Fourier's law and the conduction equation using separation of variables, Laplace transforms, superposition, variation of parameters and similarity techniques. Phase change will be introduced and resolved analytically and numerically. Special topics will include micro- and nano-scale heat transfer.
