SSE 626 Thermal and Structural Analysis

(3-0-3) This course covers two fields: heat transfer and structural analysis. The course introduces the fundamental concepts and mechanisms of heat conduction, convection and radiation, their mathematical equations and their analysis methods. Also addressed are the basic structures, such as beams, trusses and frames, determinate and indeterminate structures and the classical methods of analyzing various mechanical structures. MatLab is used to solve actual engineering problems. Emphasis is placed on developing students' problem-solving and structural
