24-731   Conductive Heat Transfer

Location: Pittsburgh

Units: 6

Semester Offered: Intermittent

This course focuses upon application of exact and approximate analytical methods to problems on conduction heat transfer, steady state and transient analysis using separation of variables, Laplace transforms, variation of parameters, integral equations, and similarity techniques, as well as numerical solution methods including iteration, relaxation and finite differences. Radiative heat transfer including gaseous radiation is also explored. 4 hrs. lec Corequisite: 24-701 or permission of instructor.
