  • In many literatures the researchers pointed out that the using metal foam will significantly enhance the performance of heat exchanger. This paper focuses on theory study of metal foam, including calculation method of properties of foam (permeability ��K, inertial coefficient f, fiber diameter $d_f$, and effective conductivity $k_e$), model of pressure drop and model of heat transfer. Theory analysis on the performance of heat exchanger will be presented here. Finally the optimal material will be obtained from theory calculation.

  • Because all areas of mechanical engineering involves the use of mathematics, mechanical engineers need mathematical understanding and skill enhancement. To achieve the effective mathematics education for mechanical undergraduate students, it should reorganize the important subtopics of mathematics. In this paper, we explore the direction of the development of mathematics education for mechanical engineers by analyzing the teaching hours of each topics in the mathematics and by comparing the results with significance analysis of expert survey. To do so, syllabuses of mathematics courses of the selected mechanical engineering departments were analyzed and the survey responses of professionals in the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers were also investigated. Finally, the revision of mathematics curriculum in the mechanical engineering was proposed.
