Thermal Science Lab

 

In the Thermal Science Lab, experiments are conducted on fundamental principles of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, covering a range of topics such as hydrostatics, Bernoulli equation, impact jets, aerodynamic forces, heat pump cycles, thermodynamic cycles, heat exchanger design and convection heat transfer.

Students use their knowledge of heat transfer, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics for analysis of heat exchangers, turbo-machinery, refrigeration cycles and piping/ductwork. Students learn how to measure temperature, flow rate and pressure in thermal-fluid systems using classical and modern instrumentation. Students are also taught how to work as a team to design experimental procedures and effectively report the results of their experiments.
