This highly commended curriculum was used to teach a popular course at Carnegie-Mellon University. Delivered online as well as through local materials, the course takes students through the entire design process, beginning with conceptual sketching, then moving through part and assembly modeling with detail drawings into increasingly more complex simulation and analysis.
Convection heat transfer involves the transfer of thermal energy from a surface to a fluid. Convection heat transfer can be divided into four distinct categories that describe distinct processes. These four categories are: 1) forced convection, 2) natural convection, 3) boiling, and 4) evaporation/condensation. The figure shows the fluid temperatures around a hot soldering iron. The heat is traveling upward due to buoyancy effects (hot air rises). If the air is moving purely due to buoyancy effects it is a natural convection problem. If the air is forced to move over the object it is a forced convection problem.
The Autodesk Simulation Workshop provides learning and teaching tools for students and educators who want to explore Computer-Aided-Engineering (CAE) software tools. These tools improve engineers’ productivity and increase their ability to solve complex problems. This material will increase your understanding of how these tools work and how to apply them. Each section includes modules that address the theory, numerical methods, and application of engineering concepts within the context of Autodesk simulation and analysis programs.
