Academic content

- Purpose
- To give students knowledge about the fundamental laws and methods in thermodynamics and enable the student to solve idealized thermodynamic problems.
- Learning outcomes
- A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to: • Explain the fundamental laws of thermodynamics. • Describe states and processes by thermodynamic parameters. • Explain common forms of energy • Use principles of mass and energy conservation. • Apply different models, expressed by equations (ideal gas equation), tables and diagrams. • Determine a systems exchange of work and heat with the surroundings. • Perform simplifications for a system, and thereby allow for thermodynamic calculations on components and systems. • Determine key thermodynamic characteristics for systems and components.
- Content
- • Thermodynamic states and parameters. • Heat and work. • 1st law of thermodynamics for closed systems. • 1st law of thermodynamics for open systems, including volume work. • Energy balance for open and closed systems. • Enthalpy, equations of state and specific heat capacity. • 2nd law of thermodynamics, cycle processes, reversible and irreversible processes. • Entropy, T-s/P-v/P-h diagrams, isentropic processes, technical work, isentropic efficiency and the Carnot process. • Phase diagrams, phase shift, cycle processes and cycle processes with phase shift. • Heat transfer trough convection, conduction and radiation. • Applications to relevant topics in engineering, e.g. (but not limited to): • Power generation, ventilation, cooling systems, material science, etc.
- Learning and teaching approaches
- Lectures, problem solving, laboratory work, hand-ins (theoretical and eksperimental) and self-study.
