14 January 2010 ME 343 -Thermal-Fluid Systems – Fall 2010 Unique #18225 Instructor: Philip S. Schmidt, ETC 7.142B, [email protected] Office Hours: MWF 1-2 and by appointment Teaching Assistant: Kevin Carollo, [email protected] Class Meeting Times/Locations: Lecture: T Th 2:00-3:30, ETC 7.146 Discussion: T 5:00-6:00 (as announced in class) Class web site: Class information will be posted on Blackboard for ME343-Schmidt Course Description: ME 343 addresses the design and analysis of systems in which thermal and fluid processes are central to function and performance. Fundamental topics, such as thermodynamics of nonreacting and reacting gas mixtures, psychrometrics, heat exchanger design, and modeling of steady and unsteady behavior of thermal systems, will be covered in the context of specific applications. The central focus of the Spring 2010 semester will be modeling and design of a solar hybrid gas turbine power system. Project: The applications content of the course will be centered around a major computer-based analysis/design project which students will carry out in teams, and which will include comprehensive written reports. Exams: Two exams will be given during the semester. There will be no final exam. Class participation: Students are expected to attend every class and to participate actively in discussion sections. Attendance will be taken and will be a factor in determining the overall course grade as indicated below. Grading: Homework 10 % Exams (2) 40 % Class attendance 5% Team project reports 45 % Course prerequisites: ME 326 (Thermo), ME 330 (Fluid Mechanics) and ME 339 (Heat Transfer) and ME 218 (Engineering Computational Methods) with grades of C or better. Texts: Material will be drawn from books used in ME 326, ME 330 and ME 339 plus additional handout notes to be provided by instructor. No new textbook is required for the course.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
