Heat Transfer Heat Transfer is a basic science that deals with the rate of transfer of thermal energy. It play a crucial role in design of vehicles, power plants, refrigerators, electronic devices, building and many other things.
Objectives To cover the basic principles of heat transfer To present a wealth of real world engineering application to give a feel for engineering practice. To develop an intuitive understanding of the subject
Thermodynamics v/s Heat Transfer The science of thermodynamics deals with the amount of heat transfer as a system undergoes a process from one equilibrium state to another. Thermodynamics does not deal with how long the process will take place In heat transfer, we are interested in rate of thermal energy.
