This course is open to students from all areas of engineering, although a graduate background in heat transfer is assumed, such as the material covered in Advanced Heat Transfer (24-730). This course focuses on the fundamentals of radiative heat transfer. Topics covered in this course are: surface radiation, radiation through participating media, and combined heat transfer problems of radiation with convection and/or conduction. This course also covers analytical and numerical techniques in heat radiation. Examples will be drawn from a spectrum of engineering applications. 4hrs lec. Prerequisite: Advanced Heat Transfer (24-730) or instructor's permission.
