Conceptests

Conceptests challenge students with qualitative questions that are not answered by memorization. Studies show that conceptests and peer instruction can dramatically improve functional understanding. Furthermore, instructors can gauge students understanding immediately and tailor their instruction accordingly. Sign up to access our inventory.

Screencasts

Screencasts are short screen captures of material with narration by an instructor. Students view these videos outside of class. They present detailed problem solutions, explanations of concepts, mini-lectures, software tutorials, exam reviews, and provide learners with alternatives to lecture notes and textbooks. These can also help to teach students a systematic approach to solving engineering problems. Some recently posted screencasts are to the right.

Nucleate Pool Boiling

The heat flux and convective heat transfer coefficient are determined for a copper pipe with water undergoing nucleate pool boiling. Made by faculty at the University of Colorado Boulder, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering. Check out our heat transfer playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL242066E80621CC10

Film Pool Boiling

Describes the regime of film pool boiling and uses an example to illustrate how to determine the heat transfer rate.
