Introduction to basic concepts of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, including conservation of mass, energy, moment, and the second law of thermodynamics.
- Concepts and definitions
- Work, heat and energy, energy balance
- Properties of pure substances
- PVT relations and equations of state
- Steady-state conservation of mass and energy
- Transient analysis
- Second law, temperature scales
- Carnot cycle, Claudius inequality, entropy
- Dimensional analysis
- Control volume analysis of momentum balance
- Shear stress and viscosity
- Modes of heat transfer
- Conduction, convection, radiation examples
The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:
- State and illustrate the principles of conservation of mass and energy to open and closed systems, both transient and steady state.
- State and illustrate the second law of thermodynamics, i.e., entropy analysis and its basic concepts including the possibility and impossibility of process, Carnot device, and reversibility and irreversibility.
- Apply conservation of momentum to control volumes in a systematic approach.
- Identify modes of heat transfer and solve problems with conduction, convection, radiation, and/or phase-change heat transfer.
- Define states and evaluate property data for problem-solving using tables, charts, and formulas.
