4434Fluid Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=620161
This course introduces fluid mechanics, the study of how and why fluids (both gaseous and liquid) behave the way they do. This course focuses on applications to two specialized situations: flow in pipes and flow around submerged objects (wings for example). In particular, the student will learn to calculate pressure drops in piping systems and forces around submerged objects when exposed to flow. The course concludes with a brief introduction to the complexities of compressible flow, as opposed to flow in which the fluid density is constant. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mechanical Engineering 201)10.40 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (MIT)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=884678
This course aims to connect the principles, concepts, and laws/postulates of classical and statistical thermodynamics to applications that require quantitative knowledge of thermodynamic properties from a macroscopic to a molecular level. It covers their basic postulates of classical thermodynamics and their application to transient open and closed systems, criteria of stability and equilibria, as well as constitutive property models of pure materials and mixtures emphasizing molecular-level effects using the formalism of statistical mechanics. Phase and chemical equilibria of multicomponent systems are covered. Applications are emphasized through extensive problem work relating to practical cases.12.581 Phase Transitions in the Earth's Interior (MIT)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=884662
This course discusses phase transitions in Earth's interior. Phase transitions in Earth materials at high pressures and temperatures cause the seismic discontinuities and affect the convections in the Earth's interior. On the other hand, they enable us to constrain temperature and chemical compositions in the Earth's interior. However, among many known phase transitions in mineral physics, only a few have been investigated in seismology and geodynamics. This course reviews important papers about phase transitions in mantle and core materials.12.811 Tropical Meteorology (MIT)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=883860
This course describes the large-scale circulation systems of the tropical atmosphere and analyses the dynamics of such systems. Topics include: Radiative-convective equilibrium; the Hadley and walker circulation; monsoons; tropical boundary layers; theory of the response of the tropical atmosphere to localized sea-surface temperature anomalies; intraseasonal oscillations; equatorial waves; El Niño/Southern Oscillation; easterly waves; and tropical cyclones.5.72 Statistical Mechanics (MIT)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=884061
This course discusses the principles and methods of statistical mechanics. Topics covered include classical and quantum statistics, grand ensembles, fluctuations, molecular distribution functions, other concepts in equilibrium statistical mechanics, and topics in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of irreversible processes.8.044 Statistical Physics I (MIT)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=884608
This course offers an introduction to probability, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics. Numerous examples are used to illustrate a wide variety of physical phenomena such as magnetism, polyatomic gases, thermal radiation, electrons in solids, and noise in electronic devices.8.09 Classical Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=554747
This class provides a formal introduction to classical mechanics, Euler-Lagrange equations, Hamilton's equations of motion used to describe central force motion, scattering, perturbation theory and Noether's theorem. The course also extends to continuous and relativistic systems and classical electrodynamics.Heat Transfer
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=620163
This course examines the process of heat transfer, or the movement of thermal energy from one place to another as the result of a temperature difference. The student will thoroughly examine each type of heat transfer (conduction, convection, and radiation), as well as combinations of these modes. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mechanical Engineering 204)Thermal-Fluid Systems
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=620166
This course deals with the transfer of work, energy, and material via gases and liquids. These fluids may undergo changes in temperature, pressure, density, and chemical composition during the transfer process and may act on or be acted on by external systems. Engineers must fully understand these processes in order to analyze, troubleshoot, or improve existing processes and/or innovate and design new ones. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mechanical Engineering 303)Thermodynamics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=620159
Thermodynamics is the study of energy and its transfers though work. This course will focus on the fundamentals of thermodynamics, including the First and Second Laws, thermodynamic properties, ideal gases, and equations of state. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mechanical Engineering 103)
