Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
The paper covers application of engineering thermodynamics to steady and unsteady industrial processes. Process Integration principles will be used as a framework to cover pinch analysis for heat integration, total site integration and utility systems, heat exchanger design, boilers and turbines, process dynamics, exergy, and advanced power cycles including refrigeration and heat pumps.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
The paper is taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and labs. There are three lectures per week, two tutorials per week (students to attend one per week) and a total of six labs. The tutorials will support student learning through a series of worked examples to help with assignments and reinforce the material covered in the lectures. Additional support material will be posted on moodle.
