AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course has the following specific objectives: to give some fundamentals on heat transfer applied to energy transformation and production; to provide some general bases in the energetic field, in such a way the student can make correct options on the production and rational use of energy; to give the first elements on solar and nuclear energy

Based on the previously stated objective, the student at the end of the module will be able to operate critically on heat transfer problems both when there is only one heat transmission mechanism and in complex systems when heat is transmitted simultaneously with several combined mechanisms .

These objectives will be achieved with theoretical lessons combined with numerical applications carried out during the exercises and the latter representing engineering scenarios present in the activity of the mechanical engineer.

From the hierarchical point of view learning starting from a scale of basic complexity (remembering, understanding) will move towards higher complexities such as solving, judging and proposing engineering solutions.

Teaching methods

The course consists in theoretical lectures and numerical practices.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT
