M E 404 Gas Turbines (3)
This course enables students with the proper background to gain specialized knowledge as a step towards becoming practitioners in the field of gas turbines. The information imparted covers from basic cycles to properties of materials required to put together these impressive machines. Competent course performance requires knowledge of basic thermodynamics, fluids and heat transfer. The homework is carefully graduated in order to highlight key aspects already covered in the lectures, with new thinking an unavoidable part. As an optional part of the course, students can run and acquire data in an actual gas turbine. Additionally, those with a strong background in fluids can design blades and study the flow around them with CDF.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Analyze cogeneration plants.
2. Analyze turbofans, jets and turbojets.
3. Specify a typical gas turbine installation, including auxiliaries.
4. Carry out conceptual design of gas turbine engines for different applications.
5. Specify construction materials to withstand typical operating conditions.
6. Demonstrate professionalism in interactions with colleagues, faculty, and staff.
Program Objectives: This course covers the following program objectives:
1. demonstrate ability to solve differential equations
2. demonstrate familiarity with linear algebra
3. perform analysis of thermal/fluids components
4. perform analysis of thermal/fluids systems
5. work effectively on multidisciplinary teams
6. demonstrate ability to communicate effectively with the written word
7. demonstrate ability to communicate effectively in oral communications
8. demonstrate professionalism in interactions with colleagues, faculty, and staff
