Modelling Heat Transfer Course Description:

The Open University offers the 'Modelling Heat Transfer' OpenCourseWare through its Mathematics and Statistics department. This class teaches modeling principles using the example of modeling heat transfer processes. After completing this course, students should understand the mathematical modeling process, beginning with the creation of an initial model to the analyzation and revision of the model based on hypotheses and assumptions. Students should allow four hours for completion of this course.

An online forum is available for participants to collaborate on class topics, as well as downloadable course workbooks. Course materials may be viewed at The modeling heat transfer course page.
