Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course is divided into 10 main fields of study:

1. Energy forms, fundamental thermodynamic concepts. The zeroth main clause. Applications of the first law of thermodynamics on closed and open systems, the energy equation State quantities (temperature, pressure, specific volume, internal energy, enthalpy).

2. The properties of ideal gases and ideal gas mixtures.

3. Idealised changes of state, such as e g isothermal, isobaric, isochoric, isentropic and polytropic processes. Processes in compressors and turbines. The Carnot cycle, other the second and third main clauses, the concepts entropy and exergy.

4. Circuit processes with gaseous media such as e g the Otto, Diesel, Joule/Brayton, Ericsson, and Stirling cycles.

5. The properties of real media, their representation in state diagrams.

6. Simple steam power processes.

7. The compressor-driven evaporation cooling process, heat pumps, the concepts of sub-cooling and overheating.

8. Basic relationship for incompressible and compressible flow in ducts and nozzles for reversible cases and for incompressible flow with losses.

9. Fundamental concepts, general laws and calculation methods for heat transfer and for heat exchangers.

10. The properties of moist air, its state diagrams and applications.

Intended learning outcomes *

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

1. formulate, model and solve problems for technical systems and devices with different types of energy exchange and energy conversion.

2. model systems, and identify subsystems and components in engineering systems.

3. present written solutions to problems in thermodynamics that are stringent and understandable.

The subject area of the Course is defined under the heading ”Course main content”.

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade *

Approved examination (TEN1; 7.5 credits) as well as passed practical assignments (ÖVN1, 1.5 credits).

Four optional quizzes are organised during the course, whose result may be included at examination. A Pass grade on at least three of four quizzes (KON1, KON2, KON3 and KON4) within one (1) year give a Pass grade on the examination.
