Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

MIET2421 Applied Thermodynamics, and
MIET2422 Fluid Mechanics of Mechanical Systems or equivalent
 


Course Description

This is the fourth part of a four-part series of core courses (Applied Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics of Mechanical Systems, Thermal-Fluid System Design, and Heat Transfer) designed to provide core knowledge of the fundamental principles and engineering applications of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. These three areas collectively make up the field of Thermo-Fluid Mechanics or Thermal Fluid Sciences but are traditionally taught as separate courses. However, in this course, knowledge from the pre-requisite courses are presented in a more integrated manner, emphasising the connectivity between these areas in theoretical treatment and through the use of practical or real-world examples of thermal fluid systems.
The fundamentals and principles of thermal fluid mechanics will be reviewed through the use of the real-world examples and be advanced to analyse the practical thermo-fluid systems for engineering design applications. Collectively, they should provide you with a sound fundamental as well as a practical knowledge of this area of engineering.       


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
This course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
• Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
• Conceptual understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline.
• In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.
• Discernment of knowledge development and research directions within the engineering discipline.
• Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.
• Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course you should be able to:

1. Relate principles of heat transfer and fluid mechanics to applications.
2. Establish basic tools and methodology, and modern state-of-the-art computational techniques for performing analysis of thermo-fluid systems.
3. Illustrate the practical engineering applications of these areas and reinforce their connectivity through analysis of thermo-fluid systems.
4. Review and reference trends in thermo-fluid related applications.
5. Make appropriate assumptions and apply relevant governing principles/equations and numerical methods to solve thermo-fluid related problems
