Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics, Basic Course

Valid for: 2012/13

Decided by: Education Board 3

Date of Decision: 2012-04-25

Compulsory for: BI2

Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish

The purpose of the course is that the student should achieve basic knowledge and skills in technical (engineering) thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.

Knowledge and understanding

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to define and/or clarify in short certain basic concepts, principles and phenomena in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics
- be able to describe shortly and generally formulate the basic relations considering properties of pure substances, mass and energy conservation, entropy generation and momentum balance, with a basic understanding of their limitations and applicability
- be able to account for and derive certain technical important relations, from basic relations, within the scope of the subject
- be able to shortly describe, clarify and analyse certain thermodynamic processes of technical importance

Competences and skills

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to demonstrate a good engineering handling practice of property tables and diagrams and to be able to solve, in a systematic manner, basic energy- and fluid-related problems
- be able to apply control volume analysis to the balances of mass, energy and linear momentum, for stationary flow with homogeneous in- and outlets
- be able to accomplish a basic fluid mechanical analysis of single pipe systems at stationary incompressible flow conditions
- be able to produce communication on problem-solving, in written, that is well-structured and illustrative, with clear references to external sources, attention to limitations and accuracy, and which demonstrate understanding of the subject

Basic concepts of thermodynamics such as temperature, heat, work, energy, entropy, and the basic laws of thermodynamics (primarily the first and second), including applications; properties of pure substances; thermodynamic properties; property diagrams; basic thermodynamic relations. Basic concepts of fluid mechanics; the continuity equation; the Navier-Stokes equations; the extended Bernoulli equation (the energy equation); the linear momentum equation; similarity laws; flow around bodies; laminar och turbulent pipe flow.

Grading scale: TH

Assessment: The examination consists of a compulsory exercise, a theory test (60 min; thermodynamics, no means of assistance) and a written final test (4 hours), which contains a theory part (fluid mechanics, no means of assistance) and a problem-solving part (open-book). Optional home exercises may provide extra point to add to the final written test. The final grade is determined, from a total sum of points from both the short theory test and the final written examination, using a special formula.

Required prior knowledge: FMA415 Calculus in One Variable; FAFA30 Physics: Electricity - Fluids; VSM010 Mechanics, Basic Course.
