Course description and aims

This course lectures the measurement techniques for thermal-fluid field. Concretely saying, important points for the measurement, such as application of physical property, addition of markers, use of laser beam, are explained with appropriate examples.
By understanding the essence of this course, student can apply the measurement techniques to precisely analyze thermal-fluid phenomena that is important in the energy engineering and materials processing.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, the student will obtain the ability listed below.
1) Ability to explain a mechanism of physical phenomena used for the visualization/measurement of thermal-fluid
2) Ability to explain the meaning of thermal property used for the visualization/measurement of thermal-fluid
3) Ability to propose a technique to visualize/measure the targeted thermal-fluid phenomena
