M E 302 Engineering Thermodyanmics and Heat Transfer (4)
M E 302, Engineering Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, is a required course for engineering science students. This course presents the fundamental principles of thermodynamics and heat transfer. The students are expected to develop skills necessary to apply these principles to common engineering problems involving properties of matter, energy, and energy transport. The scope of the thermodynamics instruction, which constitutes approximately three quarters of the course, is limited to the classical viewpoint as opposed to the statistical viewpoint. Control volume analysis techniques are introduced for closed and open systems undergoing steady or transient processes. The techniques are applied to analyze common power and refrigeration cycles, including gas and vapor systems. Instruction on heat transfer, limited to approximately one quarter of the course, includes an overview of the three modes (conduction, convection, and radiation), with consideration of forced and free convective heat transfer for both internal and external flows. Heat exchangers and heat transfer from extended surfaces are presented at a very basic level.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
