Course content
Topics of lectures according to weeks: 1. Fundamental concepts: thermodynamic system; property of state; thermodynamic equilibrium; compressibility, expansivity, extensibility and their relation, Boyle?s Law, Gay-Lussac?s law, Charles? law; equation of the state of ideal gas; general gas constant 2. First law of thermodynamics: internal energy, work; enthalpy; reversible processes in ideal gas; specific heat capacity; molar heat capacity; Mayer?s law 3. Entropy; thermal cycles; efficiency; Carnot cycle and its efficiency; Clausius? integral; specific entropy; temperature-entropy diagram; Mollier chart; second law of thermodynamics; mathematical formulation of the second law of thermodynamics 4. Corollaries of the second law: reversible engines operating between only two reservoirs; thermodynamic temperature scale; consequences of the second law for non-flow processes; the validity and limitations of the second law of thermodynamics 5. Real gases: properties of liquids and vapours; tables of properties; diagrams of properties; non-flow processes 6. Throttling of real gases; vapour power cycles; gas power cycles; heat pump and refrigeration cycles 7. Mixtures of gases: Dalton?s and Amagat?s laws; mixtures of perfect gases; the mixing processes; gas and saturated vapour mixtures; wet air: thermodynamic properties of wet air; Mollier psychrometric chart h-x; moist air processes 8. Flow processes: compressible flow; speed of sound; isentropic flow; critical state; Prandl?s equation; the Rankine-Hugoniot equation; nozzles and diffusers; mass flow rate 9. Work transfer: reciprocating expanders and compressors, reciprocating internal-combustion engines 10. Conduction: Fourier?s law of heat conduction; one-dimensional steady conduction through a composite wall; analytical and numerical non-steady conduction; conduction with internal heat source 11. Convection: forced and free convection; principles of dynamic similarity applied to free and forced convection; free convection in limited space 12. Radiation: laws of black-body radiation; Kirchhoff?s law and grey-body radiation; radiation exchange between two grey plane surfaces; shield planes 13. Lambert?s law; radiation exchange between two general surfaces; combined modes of heat transfer; parallel-flow and counter-flow heat exchangers
