Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To introduce:
* The underlying phenomena, design methods and principles of heat exhangers, and
* Boundary layer theory and heat, mass and momentum analogies.
* Compressible and super/sub-critical flow in 1D and 2D flow systems.

Learning Outcomes:
After successfully completing this unit students should be able to:
* Develop and apply heat transfer correlations for natural and forced convection.
* Develop and apply correlations for condensation at vertical and horizontal surfaces.
* Perform outline design calculations for heat exhanger equipment.
* Apply boundary layer theory to moving fluids.
* Develop and apply heat, mass and momentum analogies to fluid flows.
* Describe and apply thoery of compressible and supercritical flow phenomena.

Analysis [T,F,A]
Problem solving [T,F,A]


* Natural convection & forced convection, including dimensional analysis and correlations for heat transfer.
* Heat losses from pipes.
* Heat exchanger effectiveness - NTU relations.
* Heat transfer from boiling liquids.
* Dropwise and film condensation.
* Heat exchanger selection and design, including various single and multi phase units.
* Introduction to boundary layer flow: definition of boundary layer thickness, simple form of the momentum equation and approximate solution for laminar and turbulent boundary layers.
* Separation and wake formation.
* Shocks and supersonic flow systems.
* Super- and subcritical flow systems
* Models and mechanisms; Reynold's and film models, j-factor analogy.
