A good understanding regarding basic modes of heat transfer viz. conduction, convection and radiation with governing laws underlying this heat transport mechanisms. Mathematical background is also essential in this respect
Heat transfer is a necessary process in virtually all forms of energy generation and use; from coal fired to nuclear power stations, from automobile engines to rocket motors, from refrigerating cold stores to air conditioning space vehicles. This subject is intended to make students aware about mechanisms involved in heat transfer process in many of aforementioned applications. This ultimately will enable the students to design the equipments for heat process viz., shell and tube heat exchangers, evaporators, condensers.
