Syllabus
Prerequisites: Knowledge of the energy conversion principles and of the basic elements of fluid mechanics.
Target skills and knowledge: This course provides the concepts, procedures, and analysis techniques necessary to design various fluid machines working with compressible and incompressible flow. Design includes displacement machines and turbomachinery such as pumps, fans, compressors turbines, and propellers and their use in energy conversion plants.
Application of thermodynamics cycles in design, analysis, and modeling of internal combustion engines including sparkignition
and compression-ignition cycles; combustion, emissions, and pollution.
Examination methods: Discussion on the projects assigned during the course and oral exam on the entire course program.
Assessment criteria: - Knowledge of the selection criteria and preliminary design of fluid machinery;
- Ability to analyze the criteria for the design and / or management of fluid machinery;
- Language proficiency in microlanguage
Course unit contents: General knowledge on energy and energy sources. Plants and machineries for the conversion of energy: energy balances and yields.
Operating principles of displacement machines for compressible and incompressible fluids: characteristics, selection criteria and application
Energy exchange principles in turbomachineries. Dissipative phenomena, cavitation, the effects of compressibility of the working fluid. Mechanical similarity.
Aerodynamic profiles: applications to turbomachinery.
Centrifugal pumps and axial: characteristics, selection criteria and application examples of preliminary design and testing.
Hydroelectric plants. Pelton, Francis and Kaplan: characteristics, selection and use.
Fans and compressors: characteristics, selection and use, examples of preliminary design and testing
Internal combustion engines.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Traditional lessons complemented by practical classes in the laboratory.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes.
