The purpose of this course is to develop in the student the professional method of solving engineering problems in analysis and design, through application of the fundamental principles of physics, mathematics, thermodynamics, and electricity. Because the course is built around actual engineering problems, it leans heavily on problem definition and modeling, for which assumptions based on engineering judgment must be made. Checking analytical results is emphasized, by use of dimensions, limiting cases, and reasonableness, since solutions are generally open-ended or not unique, and therefore must be technically defensible. Particular attention is paid to the interpretation, evaluation, and generalization of results, with dimensionless variables being used where appropriate. 3 hrs. rec., 2 hrs. lab.
