Description

Thermodynamics applies to a wide variety of topics in science. Thermodynamics deals with heat, work and conversion of energy from one form to another.  Hence knowledge of thermodynamics is required to design devices that involve interchange of heat and work. Fans and blowers provide air for ventilation and are selected depending on the flow rate, pressure, type of material handled based on the industrial requirements. 
This course provides several applications in different scientific fields of thermodynamics, compressors, fans and blowers. 
After completion of this course, students will have a clear knowledge about some of the basic laws like gas law, Charles law, Avagadro’s law, thermodynamics, fans, compressors and blowers.
