EGH422 Advanced Thermodynamics

This is an energy-focused advanced engineering unit addressing core fundamentals and applications of heat and mass transfer. It introduces and discusses the key concepts of heat conduction, convection, radiation and mass diffusion while implementing conceptual and mathematical design exercises under each key concept. Such an understanding is crucial for engineers and scientists to evaluate and improve the heat transfer efficiency of various natural and man-made processes as well as machinery. At the same time, this knowledge is useful to design optimal heat/mass insulations and efficient heat/mass exchangers. In other words, for a professional who is going to be working on a role related to energy and/or heat transfer, this unit is an important source of knowledge and guidance. This is an advanced engineering unit which aims to strengthen and broaden your analytical and practical skills through realising how energy and matter propagates via conceptual and mathematical lenses.
