Problem Based Project organised Learning in Combustion Technology (INTRO)

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge and comprehension within the Problem Based Learning methods, as it is applied at Aalborg University
  • Have knowledge and comprehension within analytical, numerical and experimental analysis methodology for fluid flow
  • Have knowledge and comprehension within the flow around or within simplified components

Skills

  • Be able to verify the analytical and numerical approaches by means of simple laboratory experiments
  • Be able to communicate scientific results by means of a project report and an oral presentation in English
  • Be able to structure and plan PBL based project work and writing

Competences

  • Be able to control the working and development process within the project theme, and be able to develop new solutions within fluid‐mechanical analysis methods
  • Be able to define and analyse, in an independent manner, scientific problems within the area of fluid mechanical methods, and based on that make and state the reasons for decisions made
  • Be able to continue, in an independent manner, their own development in competence and specialisation

Type of instruction

Problem based project oriented project work in groups. During the project period you should be able to plan and structure the project work, work in groups and solve conflicts, use consensus versus fight/voting and see differences among group members as a strength. You should also work with the structure of a project report and prepare a problem formulation, set up project limitation and time schedule. The project should contain a detailed analysis of a simple flow situation or combustion process. The analysis should include a numerical analysis which can be compared to relevant flow or combustion theory. The calculations should be verified by laboratory experiments. The validity of any assumptions made should be checked. The project should be based upon a problem which has its origins in thermal energy engineering. The problem should typically include a thermal energy conversion process and/or a fluid flow component.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 10 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 300 hours for the student
