In this course, the lecturer intends to introduce some critical issues in radiation heat transfer, mainly focusing on application to practical engineering problems such as boilers, furnaces, steel manufacturing, LNG engineering and building insulations. The topics are in accordance with the lecture’s research interests throughout his life. The students will be guided to get some insight on the global energy issues and the break-through. The course will be taught in English.
The objective of this class is to understand some issues in radiation heat transfer, mainly focusing on application to practical engineering problems such as boilers, furnaces, steel manufacturing, LNG engineering and building insulations.
