Course: ME 583. Thermal-Fluid Systems Design (3)
Preparatory: ME 470, ME 490. System design and optimization course that integrates the disciplines of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Intent is to build on and extend information previously acquired in these courses. Emphasis is placed on the synthesis of components into a thermal-fluid system to accomplish a specified task with technical, economical and social constraints. Series of design problems are assigned to the class as homework. These problems require students to incorporate design methodology into their work.
