  • Overview

    The objective of the module is to familiarise students with the fundamentals of integral and differential fluid mechanics and heat transfer as well as the principles and methods of dimensional analysis in order to enable students to model idealised problems. 

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Describe fluid and heat transfer problems using dimensional and non dimensional formulations
    2. Express mass momentum and energy conservation principles as equations
    3. Manipulate and/or simplify a mathematical representation to achieve an outline solution to the physical problem
    4. Identify and analyse fluid Mechanics and heat transfer systems or processes
    5. Measure and report on the performance of a range of simplified heat exchangers

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
