General Information

Overview

This unit will introduce you to the fundamentals of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. You will start with gas laws and laws of thermodynamics for open and closed systems. You will further work on the physics of phase change processes using T-v and P-v diagrams for pure substances. This will allow you to move on to energy analysis of closed systems, and mass and energy analysis of control volumes. In this unit, you will learn how to classify fluids and determine different forces on submerged objects. You will later work on two most commonly used equations in fluid mechanics: Bernoulli and energy equations in the context of pressure, velocity, and energy conservation. This unit will allow you to work on problems related to heat transfer such as heat conduction, and forced and natural heat convection. Students enrolled in distance mode must have access to a computer, and make frequent use of the internet. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:
