This module provides the students with an understanding of the fundamental properties of gases and condensable vapours and the principles governing their Thermodynamic analysis. In essence this analysis involves the application of the conservation of energy and mass in closed and open systems. The module further introduces students to steady flow energy equation, continuity equation, adiabatic flows, enthalpy and the second law of Thermodynamics. In conclusion it explains the Thermodynamic analysis of steam.
On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:
|1||Understand the Thermodynamic properties of gases|
|2||Master the concept of heat transfer and the conservation of energy for closed Systems|
|3||Perform kinetic energy and internal energy calculations|
|4||Apply steady flow energy equation|
|5||Understand Thermodynamic behaviour of fluids in turbo machinery|
|6||Understand the principles governing the second law of Thermodynamics|
|7||Analyse and solve steam related engineering problems|
Coursework assessment: 25%
Heat and temperature affect the behaviour of fluids in operating environment. The thermal behaviour of fluids can be managed and controlled by applying the principles that govern the Thermodynamic properties of fluids. The objective of this course is to introduce the students to basic principles of Thermodynamics.There will be a combination of lectures, that will include interactive elements and class tests. All outcomes will be assessed by means of class tests and a final examination.
