Several topics in heat transfer and fluid mechanics are examined numerically and interactive environments are developed to explore the characteristics of the different systems. In particular, the following applications are considered:
Conduction heat transfer –
Convection heat transfer –
Radiation heat transfer –
Internal viscous flow –
External flow –
In addition, an interactive graphic for heat conduction in a slab has been demonstrated in Example 5.13 and for fluid mechanics, the air entrapment of liquid jets has been given in Example 5.14, the flow around a cylinder with circulation appears in Example 6.6, and the streamlines of flow around an ellipse have been demonstrated in Example 7.6.
The flow of heat in three geometric shapes will be examined: a slab of uniform thickness 2Lo; a very long solid circular cylinder ...
