'Greening' a Design-Oriented Heat Transfer Course


  • Ann Marie Flynn Manhattan College
  • Mohammad H. Naraghi Manhattan College
  • Stacey Shaefer Manhattan College


A problem set was developed that incorporated key green engineering concepts found in Green Engineering – Environmentally Conscious Design of Chemical Processes, by Allen and Shonnard with a variety of topics found in 13 chapters in the textbook, Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer by Incropera and DeWitt. Of 24 problems that were developed, a sample of some of the more popular problems distributed to a junior level, chemical engineering class is presented here.
