    TEACHING MATERIALS AULAWEB

    OVERVIEW

    Both the aspects related to heat transfer in mechatronic systems and the conditioning of the data centers will be presented during the course. New cooling techniques (jet impingement, heat pipes) as well as new heat transfer fluid (nanofluids and PCMs) will be discussed. The measurement techniques for thermal  quantities will also be presented.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The module aims to provide analytical and numerical tools to address the thermal design of mechatronic systems, as well as to know the most appropriate thermal measurement methods for these systems.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Based on the previously stated objective, the student at the end of the module will be able to:

    to operate critically on problems of heat transfer
    to apply numerical methods in the  heat transfer
    to monitor and measure the main thermofluidodynamic quantities (temperature, pressure, speed)
    to know new heat transfer fluids (nanofludes, PCM)
    to design  heat exchangers
    to know the problems of data centers.

    TEACHING METHODS
