Content

In this unit students will be introduced to heat transfer principles such as conduction, convection and radiation. Understanding of these principles will utilised in conjunction with previously acquired fundamental knowledge of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in undertaking a thermo-fluid system design project. The unit revolves around a group-based project to determine the appropriate approach to design problem, the type of solution (analytical, numerical), selection of material, sizing of thermal system and optimisation of heat transfer rates.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve a mark of at least 50% overall and a mark of at least 50% for the total of the individual components of this unit.
