The first part covers important concepts in thermodynamics, heat transfer and physical chemistry. A detailed overview of heat transfer mechanisms is given including heat conduction, convection and radiation. Furthermore, lectures on design, construction and dimensioning of heat exchangers will be given.
After completing the course, the students shall have an understanding of heat transfer. They shall be able to perform calculations on conduction, convection and radiative heat tranfer, and beeing able to identify heat transfer conditions and which equations to use. The student shall be able to distingush with steady-state and transient heat transfer. The students shall also be able to select type of heat exchanger and calculate the dimensions of heat exchangers for use in various areas.
Lectures where important concepts, theory and examples will be covered. Calculation exercises where problems will be solved. Laboratory work where the assignments will be planned and conducted.
