MEC3904 Mechanical Practice 4

Units : 0
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying
School or Department : Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering


This course aims at providing you with practical skills needed in many industrial processes. The course is designed to help you review and apply some of the basics of fluid mechanics and heat transfer to practical situations. You will conduct five tasks through which you will gain practical experience with flow visualization, measuring velocity of fluids (gases or liquids), pressures, forces due to fluids and temperature of a fluid or a solid. You will also learn how to experimentally estimate flow rates in pipes and ducts, head losses in fluid systems, and heat flux in steady and transient thermal systems. You will work as part of a team and will be given the opportunity to lead the team.
