Boundary Layer Convection Codes for Students in Java

The updated versions of these applets are available at

Here we present simple JAVA computer codes that are intended for student use solving the homework problems in a text such as "Heat Transfer" by J. P. Holman (McGraw Hill, 1986) and other similar problems on a PC or Work Station. These codes are specifically not intended as general purpose codes for use by working professionals in the field. The goal has been to keep the formulation, logic and programming as simple as possible so that the student can easily grasp the flow of the calculations. There are four separate codes at this stage - Details of how to run these codes are available in the paper HEAT TRANSFER CODES FOR STUDENTS IN JAVA by William J. Devenport, Joseph A. Schetz and Yu Wang.
