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.
- 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
The 1st Law of thermodynamics is one of the fundamental laws. It brings home the concept of conservation. This concept can be expanded into other fields also (Sociology and Economics).
The second Law of thermodynamics is a universal law. Its applications are widespread. It is used by creationists to economists. It has multiple interpretations. Over centuries, scientists have tried to prove it in different ways. This law helps us to understand why even time flows in one direction.
This lecture looks at Perpetual Motion Machines or PMMs. Over time there have been many inventors claiming to make a generator that does not require fuel. This lecture bunks the myth.
