MNE 545: Heat Transfer w/ Phase Change
Prereq: MNE 411, MNE 332 and MNE 220
Fundamentals of heat transfer in fluid flows undergoing phase change. Thermodynamic equilibrium and stability during boiling/condensation is taught. Nucleation and bubble growth in homogeneous and heterogeneous regimes are presented. Distinct flow patterns and heat transfer characteristics in two-phase, boiling flows are discussed. Heat transfer in pool boiling and condensation is presented. Liquid-solid phase change is taught at an introductory level.
