|Subject Overview:|| |
Unit 1, Fluid Dynamics: On completion of this unit students should be able to analyse inviscid flow of an incompressible fluid for simple boundary conditions and know where the concepts are applicable in practice; appreciate the application of Laplace's equation to a number of phenomena including fluid flow; be able to use complex velocity potential analysis to solve a variety of inviscid flow problems including incompressible flow past airfoils; and know the basic characteristics of pumps and fans and their classification and how to match these with operating systems.
Topics covered include basic introduction to inviscid flow with and without vorticity; concepts and analysis using stream function and velocity potential; incompressible viscous flow past bodies with vortex shedding; and basic equations of pumps and fans and their classification and characteristics.
Unit 2, Thermodynamics: On completion of this unit students should have an understanding of the fundamentals of heat transfer under steady and unsteady conditions; appreciate the application of Laplace's equation to heat conduction; understand the principles of thermodynamic plant design including heat and mass transfer; and have a working knowledge of heat exchangers and regenerators.
Topics covered include thermal conduction in steady and unsteady conditions; convection, Reynolds analogy and dimensional analysis; free and forced convection; radiation heat transfer; heat and mass transfer, boiling and condensation; and heat exchangers and regenerators, heat exchanger applications.
|Assessment:||One 3-hour end-of-semester examination. Tutorial tests and assignments to be submitted throughout the semester. Unit 1 Fluid Mechanics: Examination 35%; laboratory 5% and assignments not exceeding 30 pages or equivalent 15%. Unit 2 Thermodynamics: Examination 35%, one assignment not exceeding 15 pages 5%, laboratory oral examination (15 minutes) 5%.|
