Title: 21st Century engineering with historical perspective
Authors: Willis, Liz
Keywords: Fluid mechanics
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: © Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, Loughborough University
Abstract: This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2004-2005, from data gathered through a demonstration of the teaching and learning materials available, interviews with the tutor, student questionnaires and focus group. 'Fluids Mechanics with Historical Perspective' is part of a series of modules covering the broader subject of thermodynamics at the University of Bath. At the start of each hour long lecture the tutor gives a 15-minute input on an aspect of the discoveries and developments related to flight. This historical background usually consists of a five-minute power point presentation, followed by a short video clip providing the context for the formulae and calculations that are to be explained in the lecture.
