Heat Transfer | St. Clair College
Course Code
Course Credit

A course designed to give the student of Mechanical Engineering Technology an understanding of the mechanisms of heat transfer including conduction, natural and forced convection and radiation occurring individually and in combination. Topics include conduction heat transfer through simple and composite materials having plane or curved surfaces, logarithmic mean temperature difference in parallel, counter and cross flow, resistance to heat transfer by fluid films in laminar & turbulent flow and the sizing and application of various types of heat exchangers for industry. Also included is an introduction to the methods of dimensional analysis.
