EMAN301 Fluids and Heat Transfer

Paper Description

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.

Assessment:
Final exam 50%, Assignments 25%, Laboratories 25%.

Important information about assessment for EMAN 301

Course Coordinator:
Associate Professor Zhifa Sun

After completing this paper students will be able to:
  1. State the conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy and apply these laws to solve problems of energy systems
  2. Analyse incompressible and compressible flows in pipes and channels
  3. Understand the principles of pumps, fans and compressors and analyse performance of pumping systems
  4. Apply flow-measurement devices to measure flow rate, pressure and velocity of fluid flows
  5. Understand theories of conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer and heat exchangers and solve heat-transfer problems
