The scope of the course is divided into a number of topics that provide a broad background on cryogenic engineering. Properties of cryogenic fluids (Helium, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen) are examined. The properties of materials at cryogenic temperatures is described. The fundamentals of cryogenic refrigeration, including thermodynamic cycles, heat exchangers and compressors are given. The applications and design of different cryocoolers (Pulse tube, Stirling, GM, JT) are reviewed. The application, production and behavior of He II is presented as is the cooling of systems below 1 K. Significant time is given to the description of thermal insulation systems and cryostat design including thermal shields, multilayer insulation and structural supports. Other lecture topics include: safety in cryogenics, cryogenic instrumentation, air separation, liquefied natural gas, liquid hydrogen, fundamentals of superconductivity and superconducting magnets, cryogenic equipment and space cryogenics. A brief overview of project management principles and terms is also presented.
