THRM 320 - Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer


Course Description
The course focuses on power cycles for heat engines and power generation considering parameters leading to efficiency and performance enhancement and engine modification. Cycles used for refrigeration and heat pumps are to be analyzed and performance evaluated. Concepts of Psychrometry are applied. The modes of heat transfer are analyzed considering conduction and convection in plane walls, pipes and radiation. Application to the thermodynamic design of various types of heat exchangers is to be practiced. Cross-referenced to the National Technology Benchmarks (NTB).
