MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (ME-515)

350 Thermodynamics I (3) The fundamental laws of thermodynamics and their application to ideal cycles including steampower generation, IC engines, gas turbines, and refrigeration. Prereq: ET 210 and Phys 211 and 212.

351 Thermodynamics II (3) The second law of thermodynamics, entropy, power and refrigeration cycle, applications, combustion, principles of heat transfer, and the thermodynamics of heating and cooling for human comfort. Prereq: EM 324, ME 350.

440 Heat Transfer (3) The transfer of energy due to temperature gradients. Fundamental modes of heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation and their governing laws. Material properties as related to heat transfer and their application to heat exchanger design. Temperature and heat flow measurement. Finite element techniques will be used for heat transfer prediction. Prereq: ET 320, EM 324, ME 351.

441 Materials and Processes (4) The production and general properties of Ferrous and Non-Ferrous metals; ceramics, polymers, and composites. Processes and equipment for metal casting, material removal (machining), welding and joining, and forming and shaping operations (forging and power metallurgy) will be studied. Students will present written and oral reports covering contemporary topics in technical journals and trade magazines. Three one-hour lectures and one two-hour lab. Coreq: EM 321. Prereq: MSE 201.
