Thermal Science

Open Enrollment

Thermal Science introduces the functions of thermal systems, thermal energy and heat transfer, thermodynamic laws and properties, refrigeration thermodynamics and refrigeration/heat pump operation. It takes learners through key topics and skills in temperature measurement, pressure measurement, thermal expansion, thermal system power, enthalpy and phase change, gas laws and phase equilibrium, phase diagrams, refrigeration science, vapor-compression refrigeration, and vapor-compression heat duty. The concepts covered will help the student to fully understand thermal system design and operation.
