This module aims to develop a basic understanding of some advanced topics of fluid mechanics and thermal energy and the ability to apply these topics to the analysis of common engineering systems.
The module consists of two thematic and overlapping areas: fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. It links the broad concepts of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics with the practical context that they will experience in industry. Students are provided with a solid basis of fundamental and applied concepts in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics in order to develop a comprehensive view of fluid systems and energy generation and utilisation that will tackle both traditional problems and novel applications, keeping up with the state of the art and informed by research within the department.
Upon completion of this module students will be able to:
