Content

The scope of this course includes fundamentals of energy systems, which are the subject of political and scientific interest in recent years. Students will learn the fundamental principles that are used in the analysis of energy systems. Specifically selected topics from thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer will be subjects of this course. Particular topics include but not limited or exclusive to: conservation of mass, momentum and energy, control volumes and control surfaces, the second law of thermodynam?cs, entropy, heat engines, internal and external flows, conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer.

Objective

This is an introductory course in the thermal-Fluid science area. The knowledge and skills learned in this course enable students to analyze and design thermal fluid components and systems. The goal of the course is to provide a sound introduction to thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer
