Description

This course comprises two components; heat transfer and energy technologies. Part A of the course presents an elementary treatment of the principle of heat transfer, in which students are introduced to the fundamentals of conduction, convection and radiation. Part B of the course provides an overview of the fuels, power generation, and environmental implications of energy technologies. Part B also covers design aspects of energy technologies from an energy transfer point of view.

Replacing course(s)

This course replaces the following course(s): CHEE2691. Students who have successfully completed CHEE2691 are not eligible to enrol in CHEE2695.


Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Describe and identify the main physical processes and mechanisms by which heat transfer occurs in different real-world and engineering systems.

2. Apply the mathematical concepts of one dimensional, multi-dimensional and transient heat transfer to predict numerical outcomes of example systems.

3. Explain energy systems and energy transformations in the context of modern energy sources and use.

4. Identify and define, at an introductory level, fuel types, power generation, and environmental implications of energy technologies.

5. Apply heat transfer principles and mechanisms, and knowledge of existing commercial energy systems, in practical engineering design.

6. Work as part of a team on the development of an engineering idea from the conceptual stage through to build and operation.
