Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Thermofluids integrates the study of thermodynamics,heat transfer, combustion and fluid mechanics to understand the flow of fluids and efficiency of devices which produce and consume energy. This subject will provide students with a fundamental understanding of both fluid mechanics and thermodynamics fields to equip them to pursue further study in hydraulics and mechanical properties of engineering. Students will use software tools to model, analyse and design typical thermodynamic and fluid mechanics applications.
