Janna places special emphasis on the design process while exposing students to a wide variety of practical problems. The first eight chapters deal with piping systems, heat exchangers, and pumps. (The SI System of Units is presented.) Chapter 9 introduces students to the design process; and Chapter 10 introduces students to 20-25 design projects that they can complete on their own or in teams. For these projects, the instructor takes on the role of general contractor with severqal projects to be completed, and the students become small consulting companies who must develop estimates and bid on the projects. After the bidding process is finished, each group devotes the rest of the semester to managing and completing their porject, and then compares their estimated bids and task planning to the actuals tasks and costs.
