Problem based project oriented project work in groups. The project should be based upon a simple fluid flow problem. The problem should be investigated using analytical, numerical and experimental methods. The problem can be a process or a typical engineering component which involves single phase fluid flow of a stationary or a transient nature. The project should involve the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of the simple fluid flow problem. The simulation should be verified by laboratory experiments and the validity of any assumptions made should be checked.
The purpose of the project may be:
The project must be documented as described under "Additional Information".
Since it is a 15 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student

The exam will be based on the documentation submitted and the rules in "Guidance for the Project of 1st Semester MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering", see below.
This project module is common for students with a Bachelor’s degree from Aalborg University heading for the specialisations in Thermal Energy and Process Engineering (TEPE), Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technology (HYTEC) and Process Engineering and Combustion Technology (PECT).
Guidance for the Project of 1st Semester MSc in Energy
(For students with a Bachelor’s degree from Aalborg University) (not INTRO)
1. Demands to the project documentation
The project should fulfil the objectives of the 1st semester project theme and should be documented to an acceptable technical and scientific level. The documentation shall include a scientific paper and a poster, which shall fulfil the standard for an international conference, e.g. the IEEE specifications. Moreover, the documentation shall include a project summary report - see below.
2. Project documentation
The following material must be uploaded to the system “Digital Exam” on the date given for the submission:
3. Conference participation
The paper must be presented, by one or more group members at a conference arranged within the Department of Energy Technology. The conference will be run in the same manner as an international conference. The project poster must also be presented at this conference. All group members must attend the conference and the poster session to be allowed to participate in the project examination.
4. Project summary report
The project summary report should elaborate the project details and conclusions. The maximum length of the summary report (report without appendices) is 50 pages, and in addition the summary report should follow the rules as laid down by the Study Board in “Procedure for Project Work”, i.e. the total number of pages must not exceed 30 + 15 × number of students in the project group.
5. Project exam
The project evaluation will take place at a later date than the conference.
At the project examination the project group shall present its project work in accordance to the Examination Policies and Procedures, Addendum to the Joint Programme Regulations
The presentation and assessment of the project is conducted in English.
