Heat transfer is a process whereby thermal energy is transferred in response to a temperature difference. There are three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. When there is a species concentration difference in a multicomponent mixture, mass transfer occurs. There are two modes of mass transfer: diffusion and convection.

Steady state conduction, Unsteady state conduction, mass diffusion, numerical solution of heat conduction, and microscale heat conduction.
External forced convection, internal forced convection, and natural convection.
Black body,emissivity and absorptivity, configuration factor, radiation heat transfer in enclosure, radiation with participating media and solar radiation.
