This course introduces kinematic and dynamic effects of complex mechanical systems and introduces the basics for understanding and modeling them. The student will be able to model dynamic effects and select the appropriate models.
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.
