This course builds upon the first and second laws of thermodynamics, with a focus on Engineering Flow Processes as used in the Power Generation industries. A number of cycles are studied in detail, commencing with ideal gas and vapour 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 vapour-liquid equilibria.
1. Develop an understanding of thermodynamics as it applies to real cycles, and process engineering
2. Develop problem solving skills through the application of thermodynamics
3. Use laboratory studies to reinforce knowledge gained in lectures and improve practical and report writing skills
1. Flow Processes
2. Vapour and Gas Power Cycles
3. Refrigeration Cycles
1. Thermodynamic Relations
