Heat And Mass Transfer – HMT

Fundamentals of heat transfer with comprehensive derivation and examples

Learn about Conduction, Convection, Radiation and Heat exchangers in a most comprehensive and interactive way. Derivations of formulas, concepts, Numerical, examples are inculcated in the course with advance applications. The course aims at covering all the topics and concepts of HMT as per academics of students. Following are the topics (in detail) that will be covered in the course.
