Meeting Info

Technological Institute A110: Mon, Wed, Fri 10:00AM - 10:50AM

Overview of class

Applications of the principles of energy engineering analysis to the design of thermal systems. Consideration of such systems as air conditioning, oil piping, refrigeration, fluid distribution, and pneumatic control. Projects will be tailored to the class. Solution of open-ended design problems including introduction to EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software that has built-in thermophysical properties.

Topics to include: Energy Engineering Design, Design Constraints, Workable Thermal Design Region, Fluid Distribution System, Psychrometry (study of mixture of two ideal gases: dry air and water vapor), Humidity Control, Thermal Insulation, Heat Exchange Equipment Design, and System Modeling
