Paper Description
This course covers the fundamental theory and applications of Heat and Mass Transfer. Topics include mechanisms of heat and mass transfer, steadystate heat conduction including fins, transient heat conduction, forced convection, natural convection, radiation, boiling and condensation, heat exchangers, mass diffusion and mass convection.
The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/assets/Uploads/Documents/IEAGraduateAttributesandProfessionalCompetencies2021.1Sept2021.pdf
Paper Structure
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
The learning outcomes are assessed in tests, weekly assignments, labs, a project, and an exam, weighted as shown:
50% Final Exam (Restricted Book)
20% Two Tests (each worth 10%)
10% Assignments (Five assignments, each worth 2%)
10% Lab works (Four experiments, each worth 2.5%)
10% Project
Final exam
The final examination will be at the end of the trimester, covering the whole semester’s lecture material. It will be a Restricted Book examination. Programmable calculators, not containing stored information, are allowed. Students are allowed to bring one (1) sheet (i.e. double sides) of A4 notes handwritten into the exam room. The Exam worth 50% of your final grade. Students must score at least 40% on the exam to pass the course. The format of the final examination will be discussed in lectures during the last week of the course.
Tests
There will be two 1hour midterm tests (during the weeks starting 10th August and 5th October) worth 20 (each 10%).
Assignments
There will be five (5) fortnightly assignments that will be released in Moodle at the start of the week. They contribute 10% to the final mark.
All assignments and lab worksheets are submitted at the School of Engineering Assignment Box (E2.04). Marked assignments will be handed out in the lecture and tutorials.
Lab work
There are four laboratory sessions. The timetable for the labs will be decided by the end of the second week, once all enrolments have been finalised. Each student is required to write a short lab report covering the main results and analysis from the laboratory exercise, which will be submitted at the School of Engineering Assignment Box (E2.04). The labs contribute 10% to the final mark.
Project
In addition to the weekly assignments, there will be a miniproject worth 10% where students will have the opportunity to apply their heat transfer knowledge to an openended design challenge.
Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.

Workload
The workload for a 15 point paper is 150 hours total. This equates to roughly 60 contact hours (36 hrs lectures, 12 hrs tutorials, 4 x 2hrs labs, 2 x 2 hrs tests, and a 3 hrs exam) plus 90 hours for assessment and independent study.
Students are expected to attend and take notes of lectures, participate in four labs in total, and attend at least one tutorial per week.
