Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will intimately learn about types of heat transfer - conduction, convection and radiation. Students will get knowledge about properties of fuels, combustion statics, types of combustion facilities and pollutants which are produced by combustion. This knowledge is essential for the basic energy calculations and can be applied in other mechanical engineering lessons and branches.

Teaching methods



The course continues on the subject "Thermomechanics". The subject insightfully deals with types of heat transfer-Conduktion, convection and Radiation. Steady state conduction. Heat insulation. Heat exchange by convection - convection out change of state, convection during change of state. Radiation heat transfer- radiation in closed systém. Heat exchangers. Students will get knowledge about properties of fuels, combustion statics and types of combustion facilities. Combustion efficiency and efficiency of combustion facilities.
