This module consists of two thematic and overlapping areas: thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. The purpose of the module is to combine what students have been taught in years 1 and 2 on fluid mechanics and thermodynamics and apply them to real and practical problems. The fluid mechanical element to this course is built wholly around the fascinating and important area of compressible flows. This is a problem which is highly nonlinear but still tractable analytically and using graphical solutions because the flow adjustment is either through shocks or isentropic adjustments.
The topics that will be taught include:
Upon completion of this module students will be able to:
