ENSY 5060: Fundamentals of Thermal Science 2
Lecture - 4 credits
- Studies fundamental principles in fluid mechanics and thermal systems analysis.
- Topics include hydrostatics (pressure distribution, forces on submerged surfaces, and buoyancy); Newton's law of viscosity; integral forms of basic laws (conservation of mass, momentum, and energy); pipe flow analysis; concept of boundary layer; and drag coefficient.
- Presents Navier-Stokes equations as differential forms of conservative properties.
- Introduces theories of thermal energy transport, including conduction, convection, and thermal radiation; the design of thermal systems; and fundamentals of calculus, such as linear algebra, vector fields, and curvilinear coordinate systems required for introducing concepts of fluid dynamics and heat transfer.
- Discusses surface and volume integrals, conservative vector fields, and surface flux.
- Green's, divergence, and Stokes theorems are introduced for vector and scalar fields.
