Fundamentals of Heat Conduction
What you'll learn
- Introduction to Heat Conduction
- Effect of temperature on Thermal Conductivity
- Specific Heat, Thermal Diffusivity and Newton's Law of Cooling
- Numerical Analysis of Heat Conduction
- Temperature Distribution and Heat Conduction Equation
- Basic Engineering Mathematics
Engineering Thermodynamics cannot comment on the duration of the process i.e. it is not able to comment on how much time is required to reach a particular temperature. Engineering Thermodynamics cannot explain the mode of heat transfer either. So, in order to overcome these limitations of Engineering Thermodynamics a new subject called Heat Transfer is introduced. For further analysis of heat transfer, it is mandatory to have knowledge of Thermodynamics therefore heat transfer is also called extension of Engineering Thermodynamics.
In this first module of the heat transfer course, learners will study the fundamentals of heat conduction which is the first mode of heat transfer. Heat Conduction is a mode of heat transfer between higher energy particles to lower energy particles which is due to the existence of a temperature gradient in a stationary medium. The course is divided into five sections which are following:
SECTION 1: Introduction to Heat Conduction
SECTION 2: Effect of temperature on Thermal Conductivity
SECTION 3: Specific Heat, Thermal Diffusivity and Newton's Law of Cooling
SECTION 4: Numerical Analysis of Heat Conduction
SECTION 5: Temperature Distribution and Heat Conduction Equations
This course requires a basic understanding of engineering mathematics basically the calculus part.
We hope that learners will try to gain more knowledge from this course.
