The analysis of thermofluids is based around forces and energy: this is how fluids interact with other fluids and solids as part of their environment. Complex heat transfer behaviour is explored, with its impact on power generation, refrigeration and air conditioning. Multi-dimensional fluid dynamics and the effects of compressibility on fluid flow are examined.
