Aims and objectives

 This unit of study aims to develop an understanding of the heat transfer process, numerical tools and applications, appreciate the design principles in thermo-fluid systems, analyse existing thermo-fluid systems and contribute to new designs.
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
#Unit Learning Outcome Description
ULO1Describe the basic heat transfer concepts such as heat transfer mechanisms, heat conduction, heat convection and heat radiation equations (K1, K2, K3, S1)
ULO2Solve numeric problems by applying the fundamental principles of heat transfer (K2, K3, S1, S2)
ULO3Analyse the heat transfer mechanisms of existing thermo-fluid systems and processes and contribute to new designs (K2, K3, K4, S1)
ULO4Safely conduct laboratory experiments, analyse and synthesise the experimental data, and communicate these results in the form of laboratory reports (K2, K3, S2, A2, A7)
ULO5Analyse the current renewable energy sources and design such systems for different locations considering the local requirements; and communicate the results in oral presentation and project report (K5, S3, S4, A2, A6, A7)
ULO6Understand and explain the role of thermodynamics and heat transfer science in building a sustainable society (K5)
