4PC00 - Thermal and Fluid Engineering
Fluid flow and heat transfer play a major role in many industrial processes. Examples include pumps, compressors, wind and hydro power turbines, heat exchangers and solar collectors. This course aims at the design of such equipment and their role in energy systems. As such, it fits in the current interest in energy related issues. As part of this course, COMSOL will be used to model and analyze design problems.
