  • Semester 1, 2022 (Extended Programme)

12 credits, NQF Level 7

Synopsis

This module takes the fluid dynamic behaviour under varying flow conditions to advance level by analysing the design and performance requirements of fluid driven turbo machinery. It then analyse the dynamics of more complex flows in the form of compressible flow and unsteady turbulent flows. This complex dynamic behaviour of fluids requires the application of CFD for effective modelling and accurate analysis.

Outcomes

On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:

1

Understand the principles of turbo machinery

2

Perform calculations on centrifugal and axial flows

3

Understand the scientific analysis of compressible flows

4

Solve compressible flow problems by applying appropriate equations

5

Understand fundamental theory of CFD

6

Analyse and solve CFD related problems

7

Understand fundamental theory of turbulent flows

8

Apply modelling techniques in turbulent flows

Assessment

Coursework assessment: 30%
Examination: 70%

Workload requirements

In this module the complex dynamic behaviour of fluids is being analysed by making use of computational fluid dynamics techniques in order to assist engineers to accurately determine the fluid behaviour and solve fluid related engineering problems. There will be a combination of lectures, that will include interactive elements and assignments conducted on an individual basis. All outcomes will be assessed by means of class tests and a final examination.
