Heat Transfer Lab (P213)


RTEmagicC_heat1_01  Students conducting heat transfer experimentRTEmagicC_heat2_01

The Heat Transfer lab supports instruction and research on heat transfer. Students taking the heat transfer course conduct a series of experiments in conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer. These experiments assist students in applying the theoretical knowledge gained in lecture. ‌
