Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (EMET)

EMET 405 Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer (3) Introduction to the principles of fluid mechanics and heat transfer with emphasis on the application to practical problems.

EMET 405 Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer (3)

This course is designed to provide students with knowledge in fluid statics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer. The emphasis of the course is to introduce them to the fundamental laws and principles of these engineering sciences, and to give them experience in solving problems using these laws and principles. The instructor may employ methods of differential and integral calculus as a part of selected topics. The fluid mechanics portion of the course introduces the students to fluid statics (e.g. hydrostatic pressure on submerged surfaces) and to fluid dynamics (e.g. continuity equation, energy equation, and laminar and turbulent flow). The heat transfer portion of the course introduces the three modes heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation. It also covers an important type of heat transfer equipment, the heat exchanger.
