2.51 Intermediate Heat and Mass Transfer (MIT) 2.51 Intermediate Heat and Mass Transfer (MIT)

Description

2.51 is a 12-unit subject, serving as the Mechanical Engineering Department's advanced undergraduate course in heat and mass transfer. The prerequisites for this course are the undergraduate courses in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, specifically Thermal Fluids Engineering I and Thermal Fluids Engineering II or their equivalents. This course covers problems of heat and mass transfer in greater depth and complexity than is done in those courses and incorporates many subjects that are not included or are treated lightly in those courses; analysis is given greater emphasis than the use of correlations. Course 2.51 is directed at undergraduates having a strong interest in thermal science and graduate students who have not previously studied heat transfer. 2.51 is a 12-unit subject, serving as the Mechanical Engineering Department's advanced undergraduate course in heat and mass transfer.

2.094 Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Fluids (MIT) 2.094 Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Fluids (MIT)

Description

This course presents finite element theory and methods for general linear and nonlinear analyses. Reliable and effective finite element procedures are discussed with their applications to the solution of general problems in solid, structural, and fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, and fluid-structure interactions. The governing continuum mechanics equations, conservation laws, virtual work, and variational principles are used to establish effective finite element discretizations and the stability, accuracy, and convergence are discussed. The homework and the student-selected term project using the general-purpose finite element analysis program ADINA are important parts of the course.

1.63 Advanced Fluid Dynamics of the Environment (MIT) 1.63 Advanced Fluid Dynamics of the Environment (MIT)

Description

Designed to familiarize students with theories and analytical tools useful for studying research literature, this course is a survey of fluid mechanical problems in the water environment. Because of the inherent nonlinearities in the governing equations, we shall emphasize the art of making analytical approximations not only for facilitating calculations but also for gaining deeper physical insight. The importance of scales will be discussed throughout the course in lectures and homeworks. Mathematical techniques beyond the usual preparation of first-year graduate students will be introduced as a part of the course. Topics vary from year to year.

Widely used numerical methods will be the focus but we will also review emerging concepts and new methods. The numerics underlying a hierarchy of models will be discussed, ranging from simple GFD models to the high-end GCMs. In the context of ocean GCMs, we will describe parameterization of geostrophic eddies, mixing and the surface and bottom boundary layers. In the atmosphere, we will review parameterizations of convection and large scale condensation, the planetary boundary layer and radiative transfer.

3.044 Materials Processing (MIT) 3.044 Materials Processing (MIT)

Description

The goal of 3.044 is to teach cost-effective and sustainable production of solid material with a desired geometry, structure or distribution of structures, and production volume. Toward this end, it is organized around different types of phase transformations which determine the structure in various processes for making materials, in roughly increasing order of entropy change during those transformations: solid heat treatment, liquid-solid processing, fluid behavior, deformation processing, and vapor-solid processing. The course ends with several lectures that place the subject in the context of society at large.

2.51 Intermediate Heat and Mass Transfer (MIT)

Description

2.51 is a 12-unit subject, serving as the Mechanical Engineering Department's advanced undergraduate course in heat and mass transfer. The prerequisites for this course are the undergraduate courses in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, specifically Thermal Fluids Engineering I and Thermal Fluids Engineering II or their equivalents. This course covers problems of heat and mass transfer in greater depth and complexity than is done in those courses and incorporates many subjects that are not included or are treated lightly in those courses; analysis is given greater emphasis than the use of correlations. Course 2.51 is directed at undergraduates having a strong interest in thermal science and graduate students who have not previously studied heat transfer.

Subjects

heat transfer | mass transfer | Unsteady heat conduction | evaporation | solar radiation | spectral radiation | grey radiation networks | black bodies | thermal radiation | external configurations | natural convection | forced convection | steady conduction in multidimensional configurations

1.63 Advanced Fluid Dynamics of the Environment (MIT)

Description

Designed to familiarize students with theories and analytical tools useful for studying research literature, this course is a survey of fluid mechanical problems in the water environment. Because of the inherent nonlinearities in the governing equations, we shall emphasize the art of making analytical approximations not only for facilitating calculations but also for gaining deeper physical insight. The importance of scales will be discussed throughout the course in lectures and homeworks. Mathematical techniques beyond the usual preparation of first-year graduate students will be introduced as a part of the course. Topics vary from year to year.

Subjects

fluid dynamics | fluid motion | Cartesian tensor convention | scaling | approximations | slow flow | Stokes flow | Oseen | spreading | gravity | stratified fluid | boundary layer | high speed flow | jets | thermal plume | pure fluids | porous media | similarity method of solution | shear | stratification | Orr-Sommerfeld | capillary phenomena | bubbles | drops | Marangoni instability | contact lines | geophysical fluid dynamics | coastal flows | wind-induced flows | coastal upwelling | transient boundary layer | buoyancy | convection porous media | dispersion | hydrodynamic instability | Kelvin-Helmholtz instability

Heat Transfer

Description

This course examines the process of heat transfer, or the movement of thermal energy from one place to another as the result of a temperature difference. The student will thoroughly examine each type of heat transfer (conduction, convection, and radiation), as well as combinations of these modes. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mechanical Engineering 204)

Subjects

heat transfer | thermodynamics | conduction | convection | radiation | diffusion | Engineering | H000
