Abstract

Our team is propagating the use of hands-on desktop learning modules (DLMs) for fluid mechanics and heat transfer courses. To accomplish this we are paying close attention to several factors broadly categorized under design philosophy, relevance of data procured to chemical and mechanical engineering industry, and design for manufacture. In this paper and presentation we will give a historical perspective on how the project was initiated with dresser-sized units, proceeded through a step-by-step process to refine and miniaturize the technology, see aspects commercialized to promote adoption, and then further miniaturize the design and prepare it for large-scale reproducibility of the associated pedagogy. These hands-on units need to be low cost, light and simple to build. They need to have maximum visual impact, quantitatively simulate industrial equipment, and be simple to operate by teams of students within any classroom. We accomplished these goals by using injection molding of see-through plastics and off-the-shelf ancillary componentry to make hydraulic loss, venturi meter, and double pipe and shell tube heat exchanger units. Remarkably all of these units behave as anticipated when compared to textbook models for industrial correlations and representative data will be presented. We will also touch upon relevant factors being used to assess conceptual growth and motivation and to train faculty through a nation-wide hub-and-spoke scheme.
