A first course in thermal analysis. Steady-state and transient conduction in solids; numerical solution of conduction problems; radiative heat transfer; forced and natural convection. Introduction to boiling and condensation heat transfer. Heat exchanger analysis. A mandatory weekly lab session designated as ME 16L (no credit) must be taken concurrently. These scheduled laboratory periods involve either experiments from ME 16 or 37, demonstrations both experimental and computational, and problem-solving recitations.Recommendations: ES 7 and 8, MATH 51 (formerly MATH 38).
