ME 475 Thermal/Fluids Systems

A capstone course in which students design and conduct experiments to explore the concepts of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer using modern instrumentation and data acquisition systems. Typical experiments include steam power generation, refrigeration, gas turbine (jet) engine performance, wind tunnel measurements, heat exchanger characterization, and internal combustion engine performance. Students perform thorough data analysis and interpretation, and communicate their work in written reports and oral presentation. [W]
