To provide the link between the broad concepts of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics with the practical context that they will experience in industry. This is part of the educational sweep that will deliver the engineers of the future. The particular aims of the modules are:
|Title:||Introduction to Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics|
|Taught by:||Dr. Helen Czerski (module coordinator)|
Lectures, example/problem sessions, Tutor-lead e-learning and student lead e-learning.
To pass this course, students must:
Obtain an overall pass mark of 40% for all sections combined
The course consists of two thematic and overlapping areas – thermodynamics and fluid mechanics and will build on the basics and introductory material covered in MECH101P Introduction to Mechanical Engineering.
The topics that will be taught include:
1) Application of first law of thermodynamics
2) Pure substance, real and perfect gases
3) Second law of thermodynamics
6) Introduce: air standard gas power cycles, refrigeration and steam cycles.
1) Importance of Fluid mechanics
2) Methodologies of studying fluid mechanics
3) Characterisation of fluid
4) Dimensional analysis: examples and power behind the methodology
8) Integral vs Differential form of momentum equation.
