2.006 Thermal-Fluids Engineering II

Class Info

Focuses on the application of the principles of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics to the design and analysis of engineering systems. Dimensional analysis, similarity, and modeling. Pipe systems: major and minor losses. Laminar and turbulent boundary layers. Boundary layer separation, lift and drag on objects. Heat transfer associated with laminar and turbulent flow of fluids in free and forced convection in channels and over surfaces. Pure substance model. Heat transfer in boiling and condensation. Thermodynamics and fluid mechanics of steady flow components of thermodynamic plants. Heat exchanger design. Power cycles and refrigeration plants. Design of thermodynamic plants. Analyses for alternative energy systems. Multi-mode heat transfer and fluid flow in thermodynamic plants.

This class has 2.005, 2.051, and 2.06 as prerequisites.

2.006 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by  R. Karnik, B. Gallant and C. Buie.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 3-370.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
