Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

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.

The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/

The course is taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and laboratory classes. Details of lecture and lab content are provided in the timetable and Moodle. Please note that laboratory classes start in the third 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 non-submission is not resolved.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.

Final exam (3 hours)

The final exam is restricted book. Students are allowed to bring the lecture book with hand written notes, 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.

1 x Test (2 hours each)

The test will be restricted book. Students can bring the lecture book with hand written notes, as well as the textbook (Cengel & Boles) into to the test room. Programmable calculators are also allowed.
