Areas of Expertise
- Computational Biomechanics
- Multi-physics & Multi-scale Modelling
- Heat transfer
The aim of the module is to give an introduction to the laws of thermodynamics and the relevant properties, thus providing an appreciation of energy conversion processes for thermodynamic systems, covering heat and work, properties of pure substances, liquids, gases and vapours, the first and second laws of thermodynamics. The module will focus on practical problem solving of steady flow systems using steady flow energy equation applied to ideal refrigeration systems, heat pumps and the ideal gas turbine engine extended to ideal jet engine analysis.
The module is designed to provide a basic understanding of heat transfer. Subjects will include: conduction, forced and natural convection and an introduction to radiation.
