ME 235 – Thermodynamics (Undergraduate)

Basic principles of engineering thermodynamics. First law, second law, control mass and control volume analyses; thermodynamic properties and behavior of pure substances; application of principles to steady-state and transient processes. Understanding typical power-producing cycles, heat engines, refrigerators, and automobile, jet, and gas-turbine engines.

Fall 2018 Syllabus

ME 530 – Advanced Heat Transfer (Graduate)

Graduate-level introduction to the three basic modes of heat transfer—conduction, convection, and radiation. Detailed discussions and first-principles derivations of pertinent governing equations, computational problem-solving techniques and assignments, and the process of developing rational approximations to solve heat transfer problems. Radiative heat transfer, which is often treated inadequately in typical undergraduate classes, will be specifically highlighted with applications to emerging energy conversion and storage technologies. In this comprehensive heat transfer introduction course, students will be asked to work on a final project using heat transfer analysis and design for a real-life engineering/research problem of their own choice.
