|Subject Overview:|| |
Unit 1, Aerodynamics: Upon completion, students should be familiar with further theory of airfoils and gas dynamics in subsonic and supersonic flow; be able to apply shock expansion theory to the solution of flow in a variety of situations including prediction of lift and drag of two-dimensional bodies in supersonic flow; be able to apply Ackeret or linear theory to thin airfoils; and be aware of viscous effects, boundary layer and shock wave interactions.
Topics covered include theories of thin airfoils; gas dynamics in subsonic and supersonic flow; shock expansion theory; and boundary layer and shock wave interactions.
Unit 2, Thermodynamics: Upon completion, students should understand the principles of combustion in single and two phase fluids; comprehend the benefits and costs (including some environmental and management implications) of refinements in plant design and/or working fluid; and appreciate the complexity of real plant performance evaluation.
Topics covered include cycles of simple and compound compressors; gas turbines, influence of reheat, intercooling and design parameters; refrigeration, vapour compression and absorption cycles and gas liquefaction; steam plant, with superheating, regeneration and feed water heating; and spark ignition and diesel engines and their fuels.
|Assessment:||One 3-hour end of semester examination. Tutorial tests, assignments and laboratory reports not exceeding 30 pages due throughout the semester. The weighting of assessment components is: Unit 1 Aerodynamics: Examination 35%. Tutorial tests, assignments and laboratory reports 15%. Unit 2 Thermodynamics: Examination 35%. Tutorial tests, assignments and laboratory reports 15%.|
