This course introduces the basis for modeling the effects of kinematics and dynamics of mechanical systems in design. The students will be able to explain and model dynamic phenomena.
Students will be exposed to hands-on design problems throughout the term. They will acquire methodologies to (1) address open ended engineering problems, (2) cultivate creativity, (3) support decision making and (4) develop problem solving abilities.
This course aims at studying thermal power cycles, heat pumping technologies, and equipment.
