Description This unit covers fundamental principles in the thermal and fluid engineering. While the main focus will remain on incompressible fluids, effects of compressible fluids will also be discussed. The contents of this unit include fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Students will learn the engineering applications of thermal and fluid principles.
