Supervisor:
Department of Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics
Synopsis:

The course deal with a basic engineering approach to classical thermodynamics, heat transfer and compressible flow through nozzles and diffusers. Basic concepts and principles are introduced, and they are applied mostly to systems behaving as ideal gases or typical vapours. Basic notions associated with ideal mixtures are studied with an emphasis on psychometrics. Heat transfer covers fundamentals of conduction, convection and radiation. Heat exchangers are treated as an engineering application.Exercises and labs are devoted to practical problems and experimental technique.
