Thermal Systems Design (ME 408) Course Details

Course Name: Thermal Systems Design
Code: ME 408
Pre-requisite Course(s): ME 303, ME 301
Objective: Students are expected to review and use basic knowledge from thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, understand and be comfortable with thermal system component analysis and their synthesis in integral enginnering systems and processes. Any design course invites extensive use of engineering application software in order to minimize tedious manual work and maximize efficiency of interpolation, iteration, what-if analysis, graphing etc.
Content: Systems design cencepts. Mathematical modeling. Optimization methods. Steady state simulation of large systems; fans, pumps, heat exchangers, expanders, fluid in conduits. Dynamic behavior of thermal systems.
