The course will introduce the fundamental concepts of various modes of heat transfer.

It will further elaborate these concepts with theories and applications to the solutions of practically relevant problems.

Some aspects of process design principles of various heat transfer equipment will be taken up in the later part of this course.

Finally, to present a physical picture of the convection process, heat transfer in boundary layer flows will be addressed.

Even though the course is primarily designed to meet the requirements of an undergraduate course on heat transfer, it will be useful for the practicing engineers to refresh with fundamental and technical information.


Introduction to conductive, convective and radiation heat transfer; steady and unsteady state conduction in one dimension; forced and free convection heat transfer.

Heat transfer analysis for boundary layer flows; condensation; boiling; evaporation; black and gray body radiation heat transfer with radiation network; radiation shield.
