Course Description:
This course builds upon the first and second laws of thermodynamics, with a focus on flow processes as used in the chemical and power generation industries. A number of cycles are studied in detail, commencing with ideal gas, vapor power, and refrigeration cycles, as well as applications in air-conditioning. The course is complemented by lectures on how to calculate the fundamental thermodynamic properties of fluids as used in flow processes, together with the thermodynamics of vapor-liquid equilbria. The thermodynamics of chemical reactions, especially combustion, is covered.
