Process Heat Transfer Detailed Syllabus for B.Tech second year second sem is covered here. This gives the details about credits, number of hours and other details along with reference books for the course.

The detailed syllabus for Process Heat Transfer B.Tech 2016-2017 (R16) second year second sem is as follows.

B.Tech. II Year II Sem. L/T/P/C
Course Code: PE403ES  4/1/0/4
Prerequisites:Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Physics

Course Objective:
The objective of this course is to understand the principles of heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation) and also principles and working of heat transfer equipments.

Course Outcome: The student would be in a position to design of heat transfer equipments which are used in the process industry.

UNIT-I Introduction:
Nature of heat flow, conduction, convection, natural and forced convection, radiation. Heat transfer by conduction in Solids: Fourier’s law, thermal conductivity, steady state conduction in plane wall & composite walls, compound resistances in series, heat flow through a cylinder, conduction in spheres. Unsteady state heat conduction: Equation for one-dimensional conduction, Semi-infinite solid.

UNIT-II Principles of heat flow in fluids:
Typical heat exchange equipment, countercurrent and parallel current flows, energy balances, rate of heat transfer, overall heat transfer coefficient, electrical analogy, critical radius of insulation, logarithmic mean temperature difference, variable overall coefficient, multi-pass exchangers, individual heat transfer coefficients, resistance form of overall coefficient, fouling factors, classification of individual heat transfer coefficients, magnitudes of heat transfer coefficients, effective coefficients for unsteady-state heat transfer.

UNIT-III Heat Transfer to Fluids without Phase change:
Regimes of heat transfer in fluids, thermal boundary layer, heat transfer by forced convection in laminar flow, heat transfer by forced convection in turbulent flow, the transfer of heat by turbulent eddies and analogy between transfer of momentum and heat, heat transfer to liquid metals, heating and cooling of fluids in forced convection outside tubes.
