Fall 2009 - MAE 423: Heat Transfer


Description: This course covers fundamentals of heat transfer and applications to practical problems in energy conversion and conservation, electronics, and biological systems. Emphasis is on developing a physical and analytical understanding of conductive, convective, and radiative heat transfer, as well as design of heat exchangers and heat transfer systems involving phase change in process and energy applications. Students develop an ability to apply governing principles and physical intuition to solve multi-mode heat transfer problems.

Spring 2010 - MAE 427: Energy Conversion and the Environment - Transportation Applications


Description: This course will develop an overview of energy utilization in and environmental impacts of current and future propulsion systems for ground, air, and space propulsion applications. Principles of advanced internal combustion, electric hybrid, and fuel cell energy conversion systems for ground transportation will be introduced. Relevant thermodynamics, chemistry, fluid mechanics, and combustion fundamentals will be stressed, and performance properties of power plants, control of air pollutant emissions, and minimization of resource-to application carbon emissions will be explored.
