Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

[1]    Determine the thermodynamic properties of pure substances using tables of property data.

[2]    Apply the thermodynamic First Law and Second Law to evaluate the performance of thermal systems.

[3]    Apply the fundamental of fluid mechanics.


The course is combination of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. Thermodynamics covers the study on the energy transformation, working fluids, theory and application of first and second laws of thermodynamics.  The course also covers explanation on the steam and gas power plant as a direct application of the thermodynamic theory. Refrigeration system is also given to expose student to the practice examples of the thermodynamics principles.  Fluid mechanics covers the study of the fluid static, fluid dynamic, and Bernoulli equation.
