This course develops an understanding of the heat transfer mechanisms of conduction, convection and electromagnetic radiation, as well as the thermodynamics of gas mixtures, humidification and air stream mixing. These concepts are applied to ideal and real refrigeration and air conditioning cycles. A range of engineering applications involving steady and non-steady heat conduction, forced and free convection, and emission and heat transfer between black and grey bodies are examined with analytical and numerical techniques.
