[Aim and Goal]

Following the course "Energy and Fluid Flow I," this course is to provide the knowledge of transport phenomena of heat and fluid flow and the skills for applying it to engineering fields through integrated style lessons combining lectures, exercises and experiments. The contents are focused on the similarities and differences between heat transfer and fluid flow, and on the principles and characteristics of equipment related to the heat and fluid flows.

Goal of this course is that the student can apply the knowledge of heat and fluid flow provided in this course to practical engineering problems and design heat transfer/fluid flow equipment.
