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 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. The thermodynamics of chemical reactions, especially combustion, is covered.
