Paper Description
Engineering Thermodynamics builds on level one papers, such as Foundations of Engineering, extending on engineering principles of units and measurement, conservation of mass and energy, analysis of systems and engineering problem solving. It forms the foundation for fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermal engineering and advanced energy systems papers, especially those involving chemical, biological or mechanical processes. It covers: energy transfer processes, thermodynamic laws and cycles, psychrometry, thermodynamic property relationships, energy balances and combustion reactions.
Paper Structure
The course is taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and laboratory classes. Details of lecture and lab content are provided in the time table and moodle. Please note that laboratory classes start in the second week of semester and are an ESSENTIAL part of the course.
Important Note for International Students: For international students in New Zealand under student visas, regular attendance is part of your visa obligation and is checked as a requirement on the University under the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, to which the University is a signatory. Academic staff are formally required to monitor attendance in classes and submission of compulsory assessment events/items and to report to Waikato International in the event that any problem with irregular attendance or nonsubmission is not resolved.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
Final exam (3 hours)
The final exam is restricted book. Students are allowed to bring two (2) sheets (i.e. four sides) of A4 notes in any combination of handwritten, typed, or photocopied as well as the textbook (Cengel & Boles) into to the exam room. Programmable calculators are also allowed. Format of the final exam will be discussed in lectures during the last week of the course.
2 x Tests (2 hours each)
The two tests will be restricted book. Students can bring one sheet (i.e. two sides) of A 4 notes as well as the textbook (Cengel & Boles) into to the test room. Programmable calculators are also allowed.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
Required and Recommended Readings
Required Readings
Thermodynamics, an Engineering Approach, Y.A. Cengel, M.A. Bole and M. Kanoglu, 9th Edition, McGraw Hill.
Online Support
This paper has a Moodle page (http://elearn.waikato.ac.nz) where you will be able to access lecture notes, lecture recordings, and assessment materials. There are also discussion forums where you can both ask and answer questions.
PLEASE NOTE: Moodle will be used for class notices etc and it is your responsibility to check the site regularly. Instructions provided on Moodle and in lectures are considered to be given to the class as a whole.
Workload
The work load for a 15 point paper is 150 hours total. This equates to roughly 60 contact hours (34 h lectures, 12 h tutorials and 5 x 2h labs, 2 x 1hr tests) plus 90 hours for assessment and independent study.
