Synopsis

This unit provides the discipline basis for applications in energy, power and motive force where fluids are involved. It also provides a basic level of knowledge and problem solving capability in heat transfer. These disciplines are central to mechanical engineering and, as a consequence, are essential knowledge for mechatronic engineers whose designs usually have mechanical elements. Also, they provide the basis for the use of hydraulic and pneumatic power as motive forces, which also form an important part of the unit content.

Objectives

To understand the concepts of thrmo-fluid properties, systems and control volumes. To be able to analyse thermodynamic processes and simple cycles. To be able to calculate hydrodynamic forces on in static fluids or those in rigid body motion. To be able calculate fluid flow in pipes, including pumps, valves and other fittings. To be able to analyse and design the elements of fluid and pneumatic control systems.
