THERMOFLUIDS

EMS2TFD

2021

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

Learning ActivitiesTheory and worked examples are provided in the lectures. The knowledge is then practised in the workshops and applied in assignments, quizzes and final exam.Fundamental fluid mechanics equations based on conservation of mass, energy and momentum principles are introduced, and use of these equations in engineering applications is explained in the lectures. Tutorial questions are solved and discussed in the workshops.Basic thermodynamic laws and their applications are delivered in the lectures and practiced in the workshops.A software is introduced, and students are required to practise the software in an assignment.
