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 by covering the following topics: thermodynamic systems, properties of pure substances, liquids, gases and vapours, the first law of thermodynamics, the second law of thermodynamics, closed and open systems and entropy.
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.
