Thermal Engineering JEE223

Introduction

Energy is one of the 21st century's biggest engineering issues, and thermodynamics (the science of energy) will play a key role in understanding the energy needs. JEE223 Thermal Engineering is a foundation unit designed to introduce the laws and concepts of engineering thermodynamics using several contemporary applications.

This unit will provide an understanding of the storage, transfer, and conversion of energy. Energy can be stored within a system in different forms, such as kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy. Energy can be transferred between a system and its surroundings by work, heat transfer, and the flow of hot or cold streams of matter. Energy also can be converted from one form to another. You will explore performance analysis of energy converting plants used in the maritime industry.
