Heat transfer occurs in many unit operations in
variety of processes in chemical, petrochemical, power and
pharmaceutical industries. Understanding the fundamentals governing
heat transfer is key to designing equipment that involves heat
exchange. This course for undergraduate students covers the
fundamental aspects and quantitation of different modes of heat
transport. The course can also serve as a refresher for graduate
students
