Learning outcomes To present and discuss the fundamental principles of hydraulics and aerodynamics, in the context of turbomachinery for energy production and oil-hydraulic systems.
1. The student must demonstrate knowledge and understanding on:
Basic Fluid Mechanics, turbomachinery for power conversion and industrial hydraulic systems.
2. Must know how to analyse a network of pipes, to perform energy balances and to apply them in the framework of a thermo/hydroelectric power plant. Furthermore he should be able to design an industrial hydraulic system.
3. Must be able to test a compressor / fan / pump and draw the characteristic curves.
4. They should be able to consult with scientific literature, and to use CAD software, CFD and experimental techniques in their achievements.
Syllabus 1. Introduction. 2. Basic elements of Fluid Mechanics: fundamental principles; properties of state; laminar and turbulent flow; Reynolds Number; basic equations of mass, momentum and energy conservation; Bernoulli's equation; Darcy's law; Moody diagram. 3.Fluid transport lines: line and singular head losses; transmited power and efficienci; characteristic curves; flow transport line design. 4. Turbomachines: classification of turbomachines; basic components and working principle; turbines, pumps and compressors; governing equations; performance analysis and characteristic curves; blowers and ventilation sistems. 5.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching/learning methodology is based on a series of in person theoretical lectures, assignment classes and laboratory work. The grading of the course is based on the accomplishment of a written test, on the reports of two laboratory experiments and on the individual work performed by the student.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
