  • Overview

    Description
    The objective of the module is to familiarise students with the fundamentals of integral and differential fluid mechanics and heat transfer as well as the principles and methods of dimensional analysis in order to enable students to model idealised problems. 

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Describe fluid and heat transfer problems using dimensional and non dimensional formulations
    2. Express mass momentum and energy conservation principles as equations
    3. Manipulate and/or simplify a mathematical representation to achieve an outline solution to the physical problem
    4. Identify and analyse fluid Mechanics and heat transfer systems or processes
    5. Measure and report on the performance of a range of simplified heat exchangers
