ME 419 Thermal-Fluid Systems Design

Credits: (3-0) 3

Investigation and design of thermal and fluid systems and components, emphasizing the major thermal/fluid design issues that arise in internal combustion engine power conversion, steam generation and use, heating and ventilation of buildings, internal conduit flow; analysis and synthesis involving modeling and optimization of thermo-fluid systems, components, and processes. Review of the basics of the design process and physical processes important to thermal-fluid problems (basic thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics), the fundamentals of building and solving mathematical models, and design issues and concepts will be discussed.

Prerequisites: ME 312  and ME 313
