Rationale
The laws of Thermodynamics and Hydraulics are used in almost every industry and also in everyday life. The consumer items like vehicle, refrigerators, compressors, heat exchangers etc are based on second law of thermodynamics and Carnot cycle. Therefore, a diploma engineer in automobile is expected to understand the laws of conversion of heat energy into work or power, laws of thermodynamics and its applications in industries and day today life. The course is intended to develop the basic understanding as well as the competency to understand fluid behaviour and its properties with its concepts in the operation of automotive engines.
