To broaden as well as deepening understanding in the field of thermodynamics and facilitate training in modeling and problem solving related to engineering thermodynamics.
Course main content
The laws of thermodynamics, systems & general relationships, Classical thermodynamics with applications in energy technology, and Cycles. Control volumes and Units, Pure substance behavior, Energy transfers, Energy equation for a control mass, Energy equation for a control volume, Classical second law of thermodynamics, Entropy for a control mass, Entropy equation for a control volume, Exergy analysis, Power and refrigeration systems-with phase change, Power and refrigeration systems-gaseous working fluids, Ideal gas mixtures, Thermodynamic property relations, Combustion, Phase and chemical equilibrium, compressible flow.
Course is given in the form of 8 seminars. During these seminars students present thermodynamic theory and various concepts are discussed thoroghly.
Students can chose to be examined by developing a conference or a journal publication. Each topic project should be reviewed by another student. Presence during the seminar is compulsory.
