Beginner's guide to Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics
What you'll learn
- Learn the essentials of Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics
- Fundamental Laws of Thermodynamics
- Governing Principals of Fluid Mechanics
- Should know some basic physics
- Should know some basic Mathematics
Since the onset of civilization, mankind has always used heat and flowing fluid (Wind, water) to their advantage. In this course the two intertwined subjects of Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics will be explored.
Students of Mechanical/ Aerospace/ Civil Engineering will find this course extremely useful. People that have an interest in Science/ Energy can also immensely benefit from this course. The course will cover the fundamental behaviour of heat and also the mechanics of static and dynamic fluids.
The course has been divided into two sections. The first section will deal with Thermodynamics while the second section will cover Fluid Mechanics. There is a bonus section that will provide some extremely useful information and creative activity.
If you are interested in the functionality of machines from steam engines to wind turbines, than this course is for you. For students due to study engineering, this course will put them in good stead for future studies. Those who are already studying Engineering can also benefit from a fresh perspective on the courses and consolidation of core concepts.
Who this course is for:
- The course will suit Engineering students, keen learners and science individuals
- Heat Transfer is a different subject and a separate course is available on that subject
I graduated as a Mechanical Engineer in 2001 and since then have had a split career. I have worked both in the industry and taught in the academia. This has helped me marry the practicality of work place to the thoroughness of academic study.
I enrolled as a PhD student in 2004 (Edinburgh, UK) and completed my doctorate in 2007 in Renewable Energy (Solar Thermal)
Since then I have in my spare time conducted numerous workshops on Renewable Energy and have been an instructor for Engineers without Borders. I have taught budding Engineers both at college and University. I am a published author of two books.
Teaching is my passion alongside solving engineering challenges that can make a difference to humanity
