Course Description:
This module introduces the theory and practice of engineering fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer; progressing you to the next level of studying fluid flow and energy. You will explore aspects such as flow in pipes and channels, as well as examining turbines and the mathematical modelling of fluid dynamics in general. Also, you will be introduced to fundamentals of thermodynamics and heat transfer and explore their application in analysing steam operated power plants and design of heat exchangers. Coursework covers tasks such as designing a pump-type network to propel water to a reservoir, enabling you to practise the theory explored on the flow of water and challenging you to design a computational model using Excel. The coursework also includes calculation of work, power and heat transfer using thermodynamic charts and tables.
