Heat Transfer

Heat Transfer

The transfer of heat is an integral part of many industrial processes. Moreover, heat transfer affects our everyday lives – from an oven heating our dinner to the wind cooling us on a hot summer day. Thus, it is important that the engineer understands how to apply the basic principles of heat transfer to solve real-world problems.

In this 4-hour online course, background information on the principles of heat transfer is presented in detail. The training materials include a thorough review of the three modes of heat transfer – conduction, convection, and radiation.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credit.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Overview of the thermal sciences
  • Heat transfer (conduction, convection, and radiation)
  • The affects specific parameters have on the rate of heat transfer
  • Heat transfer definitions and terminology, including heat flux, thermal conductivity, LMTD, and heat transfer coefficients
  • Conduction and the equivalent resistance formulas
  • Convection and use of the overall heat transfer coefficient
  • Radiant heat transfer, including black bodies, gray bodies and emissivity
