- be able to characterize a thermal cycle;
- be able to calculate heat exchanges in simple cases;
- be able to characterize fluid flows in pipe; as they are covered within the courses LMECA1855 and LEMCA2321.
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
In consideration of the reference table AA of the program "Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering", this course contributes to the development, to the acquisition and to the evaluation of the following experiences of learning:
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
1. Components analysis, thermodynamics and general mechanics:
- main kinematics chain and functional auxiliaries
- thermodynamics cycles, parietal effects, energy fluxes
- breathing: operation modes, suction and supercharging
- frictions, general architecture, main dimensions.
2. Use of fuels:
- combustibility properties and studies of combustion modes
- study of abnormalities and optimisation of combustion laws
- supercharging technology and control of polluting emissions.
The first part of the presentation gives the necessary bases for the calculations carried out during tutorials under the form of exercises or case studies.
The tutorials integrate in parallel the technological aspects of the second part of the course.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Teaching is based on lectures, exercises and assignments.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The evaluation is based on :
- an oral exam on the theoretical knowledge with one of the course supervisors
- a written exam on practical implementation of the course material
- evaluation of the assignements.
The weighting of each part is announced to students at the beginning of the academic year.
Special circumstances may lead to changes in the nature of the exam. For example, the oral exam could become written, the practice exam could be cancelled, etc. Students will be notified in due course.
