ENGR 225B: Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer (in South Africa)   

Course Dates: May  15 - June 1, 2017
Faculty: Professor Dan Lacks and Professor Mohan Sankaran

ENGR 225B is a 3-week course held in South Africa. The course intertwines engineering content with regional issues specific to sub-Saharan Africa.  Field trips will show how engineering solutions related to the course material are implemented within the economic and societal constraints of the region. 

Topics: Elementary thermodynamic concepts: first and second laws, and equilibrium. Basic fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and mass transfer: microscopic and macroscopic perspectives.

ENGR 225B is taught by CWRU faculty, and fulfills all course requirements associated with ENGR 225.

CWRU Pre-requisites for ENGR 225 and ENGR 225B are: CHEM 111, ENGR 145, MATH 122, PHYS 121 (or by permission of instructor).
