HEAT AND FLOW 2
ECTS Credits: 5
This module aims to deliver fundamental knowledge on fluid mechanics and illustrate its importance to engineering systems. Fluid mechanics and the behaviour of fluids is an important aspect in the performance of engineering systems. The underlying physics of fluid flow and its application to simple systems is presented.
The module will teach the following:
Fluid Mechanicsa) the influence of fluid properties on the behaviour of engineering systemsb) the concepts of conservation of mass, energy and momentumc) dimensional analysis of an engineering processd) significance of dimensionless parameters such as Reynolds and Mach numbers, and dimensional analysis. e) design of simple pipe systems
