Second semester
Subject Type:

5.1. Methodological overview

1 Theory Classes: The theoretical concepts of the subject are explained and illustrative examples are developed as support to the theory when necessary,  focus on calculation of installation ,the characteristic curves of pumps / fans / turbines and the calculation and development of industrial applications based on Hydraulic and pneumatic systems

2. Laboratory Workshop. These classes are highly recommended for a better understanding  of the concepts because those items whose calculation is done in theory clases are shown in working mode.

3. Tutorials related to any concept of the subject. This activity is developed in a presencial mode  with a defined schedule or  through the messaging and forum of the virtual classroom Moodle.

5.2. Learning tasks

Theory Classes. it will take 4 hours per week till the 40 hours, neccesary to acomplish the objetives of the subject study, will be reached

Laboratory Workshop. it will take 10 seassons of 2 hours duration. The group is divided up into various groups, according to the laboratory capacity.

Study and personal work. This non-presential part is valued in about 90 hours, necessary for the study of theory, problem solving and revision of documents

Individual tutorials. Each teacher will publish a schedule of attention to the students throughout the four-month period

5.3. Syllabus

Topic 1. Fluid machines Classification, Euler equation, Momentum theorem, Triangle speeds, Classification of hydraulic pumps.

Topic 2. Rotodynamic pumps, Similarity relations, The impeller, Yield and Power, Characteristic curves, Applications in industrial systems. 

Topic 3. Fans and hydraulic turbines, Definition and classification. Action and Reaction turbines, Net height. Losses, yield and power, Applications in industrial systems…

Topic 4.

 Topic 5. Final project on practical application

5.4. Course planning and calendar

The theory classes and problems are given in the timetable established by the center, as well as the hours assigned to the practices.
The presentation of the works will be done on the last day of class of the subject.

5.5. Bibliography and recommended resources
