[Summary of Lecture] The course focuses on the fundamentals of heat transfer including heat conduction, convection and radiation that are one of transfer phenomena. Each transfer mechanism is explained and students learn how to estimate heat transfer rate and temperature variations in space and time based on the mechanisms. Complex heat transfer in which simultaneous mechanisms occur is also studied.
[Aim of Lecture] Engineers and researchers dealing with chemical processes should understand heat transfer phenomena because all the process are normally accompanied by heat transfer. This lecture aims for students to understand the fundamentals of heat transfer.
[Target of Lecture] Target of this lecture is to understand how to analyze heat transfer including three mechanisms and estimate heat transfer rate and temperature variations in space and time.

|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
The first part of the lecture is the explanation of topic scheduled. Towards the end of class, students tackle exercise problems related to the topic taught on that day. Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
|Course schedule||Required learning|
|Class 1||Introduction of heat transfer phenomena||To be able to understand the outline of heat transfer phenomena.|
|Class 2||Steady state conduction and thermal resistance||To be able to understand heat transfer by steady state heat conduction and the concept of thermal resistance.|
|Class 3||Unsteady state heat conduction||To be able to estimate temperature variations in space and time by unsteady steady state heat conduction.|
|Class 4||Enhancement of heat conduction (Fin) and basics of convection heat transfer||To be able to evaluate heat transfer rate enhanced by fins and to be able to understand the basics of convection heat transfer.|
|Class 5||Heat transfer by forced convection and natural convection||To be able to estimate heat transfer rate by forced and natural convection.|
|Class 6||Basics of radiation||To be able to understand heat transfer by radiation|
|Class 7||heat transfer combined by conduction, convection and radiation||To be able to estimate heat transfer rate combined by conduction, convection and radiation.|
To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbooks entitled such as chemical engineering and heat transfer. Also materials are distributed accordingly.
Students will be assessed on their understanding of the basic concept such as conduction, convection and radiation as well as their ability of estimating heat transfer rate and temperature variations in space and time, based on their scores of the final exams and exercise problems.
No prerequisites are necessary, however enrollment in the related courses is desirable.
