This unit introduces you to key concepts and principles required to analyse problems involving heat exchange and energy conversion. You will analyse and design heat exchangers and analyse performance of compressors, internal combustion engines, gas turbines and jet propulsion. You will analyse combustion processes and estimate pollutant emissions, and analyse and design nozzles to promote safe and efficient combustion. You will prepare technical reports that demonstrate critical evaluation of results and experimental uncertainties. You are required to show your ability to work productively, both individually and collaboratively, to solve problems, and document and communicate their work clearly in a professional manner.
On-campus students will be required to attend laboratory sessions to promote development of unit learning outcomes. Distance students will be required to attend a residential school to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
Term 1 - 2017
