For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/disability
|Subject Overview:|| |
Unit 1, Fluid Mechanics: Students should develop a fundamental understanding of basic principles of fluid statics and dynamics; gain experience in practical methodologies applied to the solution of engineering flow problems; have an ability to perform force and stability analysis in fluid statics; analyse control volumes analysis for continuity, energy and momentum balances; perform dimensional analysis; and understand fluid resistance, drag and lift.
Topics include fluid statics, static forces on submerged structures, stability of floating bodies; fluid dynamics; streamlines; pathlines and streaklines; conservation of mass, momentum and energy; Euler's equation and Bernoulli's equation; control volume analysis; dimensional analysis; incompressible flow in pipes and ducts; boundary layers; flow around immersed bodies; and drag and lift.
Unit 2, Thermodynamics: Students should develop an understanding of laws of thermodynamics and thermodynamic property relationships and how to apply these principles to engineering systems; understand non-flow and steady flow processes; understand second law limitations; formulate equations for process performance and cycle efficiency; and carry out combustion analysis.
Topics include heat and work, ideal non-flow and flow processes; laws of thermodynamics; Carnot's principle; Clausius inequality; direct and reversed heat engines; thermal efficiencies; properties of pure substances; change of phase; representation of properties; steam and air tables; and vapour equation of state, ideal gases.
|Assessment:||One 3-hour end of semester written examination (80%), laboratory work (5 experiments with reports, each up to 5000 words, scheduled throughout the semester) (20%).|
