Section Description

This course provides students with a solid foundation in order to compute stress, strain and energy in solids and structures under various loading conditions including axial, bending, shear, torsion and thermal. It introduces the concept of structural instability. The course presents theories of thermal energy transport, including conduction, convection, and thermal radiation. Solution methods are developed for steady-state and transient conduction problems. Convective heat transfer mechanisms are introduced and correlations to evaluate the heat transfer coefficient are discussed. Methodologies for calculating the thermal radiation heat transfer between surfaces are introduced.
