This course introduces electrical power engineering students to basic thermodynamic and fluid mechanics principles. It introduces the important concepts of mass, energy, and entropy in thermodynamics and melds traditional content with the web-based resources and learning tools such as the “The Expert System for Thermodynamics” - an interactive platform that offers smart thermodynamic tables for property evaluation and analysis tools for mass, energy, entropy, and energy analysis of open and closed systems. The second section of the course introduces engineering students to the principles of fluid mechanics with a focus on the most essential topics in the field, and includes practical applications for several engineering disciplines. Read more
