Rationale
Subject knowledge of thermal engineering is required in many industries. The objective of this course is to establish basic fundamental and practical knowledge in the field of internal combustion engine, refrigeration, air conditioning, eco-friendly fuels, etc. These are major fields of mechanical engineering. Student will be able to understand different systems and apply its competencies in major fields in related industries. Knowledge of alternate fuels is required as emerging field and today’s need of society which will be provided by the course content.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Analyze performance of ICEs by operating them and observing changes in thermodynamic properties during each stroke of ICEs (and by using thermodynamic diagrams.)
ii. List characteristics and properties of alternate fuels used for ICEs.
iii. Analyse the performance of Vapour Compression Refrigeration System (VCRS), by operating them and observing the changes in properties of refrigerant during each process on VCRS (and using thermodynamic charts/diagrams.)
iv. Explain working of various air-conditioning equipments and aids including ducts and fans
v. Carryout maintenance task by using suitable tools and equipment
