The main purpose of this laboratory manual is to equip students with the necessary information to perform experiments related to thermofluids for their course. All students taking this course are expected to perform each experiment correctly through established procedures and good record-keeping. The laboratory's experiments will also test the student's ability to analyse the basic experimental data accordingly, as required. The manual contains guidelines on how to perform the experiments safely and also provides details on each laboratory to be conducted. The laboratory manual also contains the format and description on laboratory report requirements, as well as information for writing a good report based on experiment conducted. All laboratory experiments will require students to perform computational approaches to solve mathematical problems related to laboratory work. This will allow them to produce a basic technical report for each experiment in a structured format and in a professional manner. The lab experiments are conducted to expose students to the concepts learned in Fluid Mechanics 1 and Thermodynamics courses. Students should be able to justify the availability of information on thermofluid technologies corresponding to laboratory work carried out. This experimental work will enhance their knowledge by allowing them to apply the concepts learned in the classroom by conducting practical laboratory work. The work done for all the experiments in this lab will test their ability to work in a group as a leader or as a member.
