EN 320 Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer
EN 320 Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer 3
This course presents the fundamentals of both fluid mechanics and heat transfer from an engineering perspective. The fluids portion considers fluid statics, fluids in motion, momentum and energy equations, boundary layers, internal flows (e.g. pipes), and external flow (drag and lift). The heat transfer portion considers steady and transient conduction, internal and external forced convection, natural convection, radiation heat transfer, and heat exchangers. All topics are presented in the context of real world applications to create engineering estimates of performance. Prerequisite: EN 300. Fall semester, even years.
