Objectives This is an exercise course which accompanies the lecture Fundamentals of Thermofluiddynamics. After successfully engaging with the topics of this course, students will be able to apply the fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Fluid Dynamics covered in the lecture on basic practical calculation examples. The level of mathematical modeling and analysis of the mentioned topics is comparable to the level of the textbooks: Schneider, Repetitorium Thermodynamik, Oldenburg 1996 und Zierep, Bühler, Grundzüge der Strömungslehre, Springer 2013.
  • Basic concepts of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer
  • First and second principle of thermodynamics, thermodynamic cycles, irreversible processes
  • Conductive and convective heat transfer
  • Conservation of mass, momentum and energy of inviscid fluids
  • Incompressible and compressible flows (filament of flow theory)
  • Flow behaviour of Newtonian fluids
  • Laminar and turbulent pipe flow
Criteria for evaluation Written and/or oral examination, homework
Methods Development of practical exercises
