Thermodynamics and Energy Lab


Thermodynamics is often described as the science of energy. The Thermodynamics and Fluid mechanics Laboratory hosts a large variety of equipment which allows the student to properly investigate some of the fundamentals of energy use and fluid flow. Whether its steam generation, gas turbine technology or trends in air conditioning the lab caters for it all. The lab also boasts an impressive range of green energy solutions including 3 different types of solar collectors, heat pumps and a new state of the art apparatus to investigate radiant heat transfer properties.

In the fluid mechanics section we have more than 50 pieces of equipment which allow for hundreds of interesting experiments to be carried out. From simple flow measurement to advanced visualisation of fluid flows using a PIV laser system the lab has it all.
