In the fluid dynamics and heat transfer lab you will perform experiments using state of the art equipment. The lab features hand tools and analytical devices to deliver and measure voltage. It also has pneumatic service and a central power bus. You will learn about fluid behavior, pressure losses, pumping power and many other design related criteria to design robust and efficient fluid systems. You will also perform a variety of experimental set ups to learn about heat and thermal energy transfer.
The Concentric Heat Exchanger and the Plate Heat Exchanger used in the Thermodynamics lab. Thermocouples for the systems are connected via USB to this computer so that the hot and cold temperatures can be monitored and recorded digitally.
