OVERVIEW

Aims. Provide students with the necessary knowledge for the proper use of the basics of technical thermodynamics and heat transfer in the context of energy conversion systems.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Demonstrate understanding of the nature and operating principles of systems involving energy flows.

Basic thermodynamic and fluid dynamics(gas – liquid – two phases) problems solution.

First law analysis and performance prediction of idealized forms of thermodynamic systems.

Describe and assess benefits of improvements to thermodynamic systems. Comparing different solutions.

Basic functional design of thermo-systems.

Teaching methods

Lectures and final exam.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

This course provides an introduction to the essential theoretical basis of engineering thermodynamics and its application to a range of problems of relevance to practical engineering:   thermodynamic properties of working fluids including enthalpy and entropy; First Law of Thermodynamics applied to common engineering situations; Second Law of Thermodynamics applied to heat engines and refrigeration systems; common practical heat engine and refrigeration cycles. The course aims to equip students with basic tools and methodologies for carrying out thermodynamic analyses of engineering systems.

The course also provides elements of heat transfer, in particular heat conduction.

Exam description

Oral examination. The exam mandatory begins with technical questions and blackboard exercises. If the student passes this phase the examination continues with a more theoretical phase. The typical duration of a test is 30 minutes.
