|(3 cr.) This integrated study of fundamental topics in
thermodynamics and fluid mechanics introduces
conservation principles for mass, energy and
linear momentum as well as the second law of
thermodynamics. Principles are applied to
incompressible flow in pipes and turbomachinery,
external flows, power generation systems,
refrigeration cycles and total air-conditioning
focusing on the control volume approach.
Laboratory exercises are integrated into classroom
work. This course includes completion of a
comprehensive, out-of-class design problem. This
design problem provides the opportunity for
students to apply engineering science and the
engineering design process to a hands-on project.
