Heat Transfer Laboratory



The heat transfer lab is equipped with an array of equipment for students to study heat transfer mechanisms in a variety of heat exchange devices. In particular, the laboratory has models of a refrigerator, a dehumidifier, two cooling units (ice plants) and an absorption refrigerator that offer a detailed insight into refrigeration and air-conditioning. Recently installed equipment now also offers research opportunities to M.E. scholars into various aspects of conduction, convection and radiation.
