Studies in Fluid Dynamics – Primary Focus on Energy Machines and Processes

The Fluid Dynamics Laboratory provides the highest levels of research-based education in the field of thermal and fluid dynamics, machines and processes.

The teaching includes laboratory work in fluid dynamics with the basic operation of equipment and understanding and managing numerical flow calculations. The essential concepts and theory in fluid dynamics as well as applied calculation exercises form the basis of the teaching.

In the courses, students will gain practical experience in modern gas turbines and compressors, pumps and fans. They will develop an understanding of the characteristics of turbo-charged motors and aircraft engines. The course will develop a good understanding of the design, structure and practical applications of these areas.

In addition, students will gain a basic feel for energy technology laboratory measurement methods and measuring devices by performing laboratory tasks and measurements in energy-related processes. The area of measurement includes things such as pressure, temperature, humidity, flow volumes, heat conduction and radiation.

The studies also include the most common energy conversion processes, such as combustion engines, steam and gas turbines. They also include the basics in Rankine, ORC, and Stirling cycles as well as the properties and features of refrigeration machines and heat pumps.

Instruction is given in traditional lecture format as well as through problem-solving exercises. In the exercises, students will also gain skills in technical reporting.
