Introduction

Basic modes of heat transfer; thermal properties of materials.

Conduction Heat Transfer

General conduction equation for one, two and three dimensional steady state situation; steady state conduction in different geometry and composite structures for one dimensional situation; electrical analogy; heat transfer from extended surfaces; transient heat conduction in one dimension; multidimensional transient heat conduction by superposition methods; analytical and numerical solutions or methods.

Radiation Heat Transfer

Radiation fundamentals -- properties and laws; electromagnetic wave spectrum and thermal radiation; intensity of radiation, radiation exchange between surfaces, shape factor-analysis; radiation exchange in enclosures; gas radiation; radiation shield; solar radiation and its prospects in Bangladesh.
