Course Description

Students perform experiments demonstration thermal fluids concepts, including fluid mechanics and heat transfer, in a laboratory setting. They engage with measurement and diagnostics systems, including various transducers, their associated signal conditioners, as well as digital data acquisition and recording devices. Statistical methods are emphasized for data analysis. Students perform calibration and select appropriate sampling rates and test durations for experiments. They systems tested range from a simple multi-sensor laboratory apparatus to commercial scale thermal-fluids systems. Meets Core Curriculum Essential Learning Outcome for Quantitative Literacy (QL).
