The industrial revolution may have been fired by coal, but it was powered by steam. Humans have been harnessing the power of steam for thousands of years, but it is only in the past 200 years that we have started to rely on it for countless industrial applications. This course looks at the origins of steam, its theory (thermodynamics), generation and applications.
In this course, we will cover why steam is used instead of other energy fluids and the history of steam in engineering. Heat fundamentals (thermodynamics, latent heat, sensible heat etc.) and heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation etc.). Combustion theory (efficiency, heat values etc.) and steam properties (wet, dry, saturated, enthalpy etc.).
