This course conveys the fundamental thermodynamic principles and analysis methods, with an emphasis on applications to engineered systems and processes. The topics covered include basic concepts and definitions, first law of thermodynamics and its applications to closed and open systems, second law of thermodynamics, equations of state, thermodynamic property relations, ideal gas mixtures, psychrometrics, reacting mixtures, and chemical and phase equilibrium. Examples of using thermodynamic principles for design and performance analysis are given for selected systems and components such as conventional and renewable-based power plants, engines, heat pumps, buildings, air conditioners, fuel cells, and chemical reactors.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Evaluate physical properties of solids, fluids and gases.
- Formulate mass and energy balances for closed and open systems without and with chemical reactions, and perform their exergetic analysis.
- Evaluate thermal effects associated with gas mixing, separation, and chemical reactions, and determine the equilibrium composition of such systems.
- Apply thermodynamic principles to design and performance analysis in interdisciplinary engineering applications including energy, materials and process engineering, built environments, biomedicine, and manufacturing.
- Apply thermodynamic principles to analysis of natural systems and processes.
- Write succinct engineering reports based on experimental observations and theoretical analysis.
