Description

Fluid properties such as density and viscosity. Fluid statics, Bernoulli's equation, pipe flow profiles, pressure drop and frictional losses under flow. Laminar and turbulent flow. Pumps, compressors and fans. Thermodynamic properties such as heat capacity, latent heat of fusion and evaporation. Introduction to conductive and convective heat transfer, film and overall heat transfer coefficients. Radiation. Graphical analysis of common thermodynamic cycles, including the Carnot cycle and heat pumps.

Learning Outcomes

  • By the end of the course, you will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of the fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics relevant to industrial design.
  • Apply the fundamental theories and equations of fluid flow to problem scenarios relating to common applications.
  • Apply the fundamental theories and equations of heat transfer to problem scenarios relating to common applications.
  • Work as a team for the design and production of laboratory-based tasks and reporting thereon.
  • Produce clear, concise summaries on material generated throughout laboratory activities and communicate concepts to peers.

Pre-requisites
