Heat and Mass Transfer

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Heat and Mass Transfer
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2014
Module code: WIMAScWPF-Ing11
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+2U (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Written exam

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

WIMAScWPF-Ing11 (P450-0147) Industrial Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2014 , semester 2, optional course, general subject
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 180 hours (equivalent to 6 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 135 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Frank Ulrich Rückert

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module students will:
_        be familiar with the three transfer mechanisms: thermal convection, thermal conduction and thermal radiation and be able to independently classify and formulate simple problems.
_        understand the influence of boiling, condensation and cavitation phenomena on heat transfer.
_        be familiar with the comparative figures and be able to apply them.
_        be able to create simple application cases from the field with the AMESim tool, interpret the results and present and discuss them to the group (presentation with PowerPoint).
Lastly, students will have received a first insight into modelling complex heat transfer problems on metallic components with the ANSYS tool.

Module content:
The lecture will deal with the basic theory of heat and mass transfer. It will be supplemented by arithmetical exercises that will be calculated in class on the blackboard (exam preparation). In addition to the theoretical arithmetical tasks, problems from everyday "technical" life will be discussed, e.g.:
_        Heat conduction in different metals
_        The arrangement of radiators in an apartment room
_        Yield/influence weather on solar collectors
_        The optimization of shell and tube heat exchangers
_        Heat balance in vehicle cockpits
The user-friendly tools AMESim and ANSYS will be introduced and students will be able to practice using them. (Easy handling; previous knowledge is not necessary.)   
The resulting technical solutions, as well as possible design alternatives, will be discussed in the group.

Teaching methods/Media:
Presentation/lecture with projector, calculations on the blackboard
Supervised computer exercises in the pool; student presentation of solutions (creation of a PowerPoint presentation)
