This unit aims to teach the fundamentals of thermal engineering with a particular emphasis on thermodynamics with some elements of heat transfer and thermal system instrumentation and measurement. At the end of this unit students will have an understanding of the basic laws of thermodynamics, heat transfer and measurement of thermal systems and how to apply them in an engineering context. The course content will include topics covering thermal and phase properties of substances, heat and work interactions, the first law of thermodynamics, the second law of thermodynamics, entropy and its application to engineering systems, gas power and refrigeration cycles, heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation, thermal sensors and data acquisition.
