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 can also be converted from one form to another. You will explore performance analysis of energy converting plants used in the maritime industry.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2024 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2024 will be available from the 1st October 2023. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
- Apply Laws of Thermodynamics and Ideal Gas Law to non-flow and steady-flow processes.
- Describe the heat engine cycles and assess their performances for operating duties.
- Present quantitative data as part of a high-quality technical report.
- Conduct energy analyses of the systems by calculating the rate of energy conversion and transfer for conduction, convection and radiation processes.
