Fundamentals of Engineering Science, Mathematics for Engineers
Aims/Description: This unit introduces fundamental principles of thermodynamics of liquids and gases and of fluid flow and the calculations associated with them. This knowledge will be progressed to look at the interrelationship between pressure, flow and temperature and how this affects the design, performance and energy terms of engineering components and systems. Irreversibility, both from the point of friction and entropy change will be examined both qualitatively and quantitatively. Examples of energy conversion in the form of power cycles will be provided.
