Optical Engineering and Thermal Radiation
New: Spring 2020
Integrated optics and thermal radiation heat transfer. Basic optics covers ray tracing, wave equation, layered media, and light-matter interactions. Its application to thermal radiation considers materials properties, view factors, and participating media.
Graduate/Senior-Level Advanced Math Methods
Introduction to partial differential equations (PDEs) and numerical methods used to solve them. Other topics include series solutions, computational uncertainty, and conduction heat transfer.
Undergraduate Heat Transfer
Spring 2018, Spring 2019, Fall 2019
Core engineering course on energy physics and modes of heat transfer. Conceptual and analytical details on conduction, convection, and thermal radiation are taught.
