a good review of Fluid Mechanics
Fields of practice: Mechanical Engineering program
This subject provides a solid grounding in key concepts and fundamental principles, along with the assumptions made in their development, relating to heat transfer and to the operation of various machines associated with thermal energy (such as heat exchangers). It aims to develop expertise in applying these principles, in rational combination with the necessary empiricism, to practical engineering situations involving heat transfer and such machines, including their selection, application, performance prediction and design. The subject also reinforces an appreciation of the links between different subject areas and engineering disciplines. Topics covered include fundamentals of heat transfer covering conduction, convection and radiation, and heat exchangers.
