This paper examines the physics of fluid dynamics, including their role in real applications such as pipe-work, flow measurement devices, pumps, and compressors. Conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer are also addressed.
The course consists of 24 lectures, a one-hour tutorial each week to assist with assignments, and 5 three-hour labs over the semester.
