Thermofluids is a branch of knowledge which deals with the energy content in and transport by fluids. "Thermo" meaning heat, and fluids refers to liquids, gases and vapors. Pressure, volume, and density all play an important role in thermofluids. Temperature, flow rate, phase-change and chemical reactions may also be important in a thermofluids context.

The study of thermofluids comprises two sections:



Sections include :

  • Energy transfer by heat, work and mass
  • Laws of thermodynamics
  • Entropy
  • Refrigeration Techniques
  • Properties and nature of pure substances


  • Engineering : Predicting and analysing the performance of machines

Fluid Mechanics

Sections include :

  • Fluid flow and continuity
  • Momentum in fluids
  • Static and dynamic forces on a boundary
  • Laminar and turbulent flow
  • Metacentric height and vessel stability

Fluid Mechanics the study of the physical forces at work during fluid flow. Some of its more interesting concepts include momentum and reactive forces in fluid flow and fluid machinery theory and performance.


  • Engineering : Fluid machinery design
  • Dam design
  • Boat design
