Heat Transfer

This is a teaching laboratory for studying heat exchange and heat transport by conduction, convection and radiation.

Instrumentation includes a Hilton thermal radiation convection and conduction setup, Hampden heat exchanger, Hilton turbulent flow and cross flow heat exchangers. The radiation setup is equipped with an electric muffle furnace, plane surface radiator, radiometer digital temperature display thermocouples, photometer, and thermopile, which enables students to measure black body radiation, emissivity and radiation view factors. This lab serves the Mechanical Design and Testing Lab (ME 384), and is adequate for Senior Projects I, II (ME 391-2), and other project work.
