Student, who passed the course satisfactorily, will be able to:

- sketch and interpret temperature distributions and heat flux distributions for mathematical models of heat conduction with planar and radial geometries, including heat generation,
- use Fourier’s law and energy equations to derive fundamental differential thermal energy equations and develop mathematical models for thermal systems,
- construct and examine conduction and convection thermal circuits,
- construct finite difference energy equations for various boundary conditions using energy balance,
- analyze transient conduction problems using Lumped Capacitance Method and 1D transient available solutions,
- apply Boundary Layer Analogies (i.e. Reynolds Analogy) for convective heat transfer problems and sketch hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layer thicknesses and profiles for external and internal flow configurations,
- choose and apply appropriate dimensionless correlations to calculate heat transfer coefficient for external and internal flow configurations,
- define and apply the following terms in an energy balance: emission, radiosity, irradiation, net radiation heat flux, emissivity, absorptivity, reflectivity, and transmissivity,
- identify the modes of boiling/condensation and calculate the related heat transfer coefficient,
