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