Thermal and Fluids Engineering addresses the scientific and technological bases of the energy-related processes in the field of cooling and heating production. Almost all industrial processes require thermal energy transfer.
The study of the thermodynamic properties of the working fluids circulating through industrial devices like water, air, refrigerants, gases and gas mixtures is essential to analyze the behavior of thermal systems. Starting from these properties, the conservation equations of mass and energy transfer are obtained.
Knowledge of refrigeration cycles and psychrometric processes provide the basis for air conditioning systems and industrial refrigeration. For combustion processes, this course examines the basic equations to obtain the levels of temperature and heat transfer in combustion reactions.
