Requisites

Pre-requisite: CIV1500 or CIV1501 or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: BENH or BEBC or BEHS or GCEN or MENS or GEPR

Overview

This fundamental course enables students to study the flow behaviour of fluids (liquids or gasses) and their interaction with the environment. Through an understanding of how these processes occur, students will design efficient systems, benefitting the environment and the economy. This course leads into the higher-level studies of thermofluids in MEC3107 Thermofluids, MEC4108 Advanced Thermofluids and MEC4104 Renewable Energy Technology.

Students will learn how pressure controls the movement of fluids and fluids exert pressure on their surroundings. They will study how the exchange of energy via work and/or heat transfer enables the design of practical devices. The implications of these processes are used in the analysis of practical systems.
