Description: Heat transfer phenomena are very complex and understanding them is of fundamental importance for the development of new technologies. Experiments concerning the heat transfer are difficult and expensive, and theoretical solutions are possible for simple geometries and boundary conditions, so simulations and numerical calculations are important. The dynamic development and miniaturization of microprocessors allow for a gigantic increase in computing power, and therefore of the importance of numerical computing. There are many professional programs on the market that can be used to calculate the exchange processes. One of the tools is MathCad. The lecture presented herein is entirely prepared as a set of programs in MathCad, which serves simultanously as a textbook and computational tool. In this way, the basic issues of the heat transfer were elaborated along with calculation examples. The user can change the input data, selected geometric and material parameters and obtain results for the cases of interest to the user. Before each chapter, the basic knowledge and equations in the classical form are presented in a very concise way in order to facilitate the understanding of the calculations performed in MathCad. The work also presents a wide scope of determining the configuration coefficients for radiation problems. In addition, a number of solutions for selected tasks involving complex heat transfer has been presented. The prepared set of programs can be very useful for engineers and students as it allows for quick, multi-alternative calculations. The presented work is not a manual textbook for the use of MathCad – it constitues a set of examples of its application into the study of heat transfer processes. The drawings, due to the organization of the whole work, are numbered within the subsections and in the programs – in the programs’ frameworks.
