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)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)
