 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } Learning objectives Engineering Thermodynamics 1 After the course, the student will be able to: explain thermodynamic concepts, processes and definitions. distinguish different kinds of thermodynamic energies and mathematically describe how these can be transformed into each other. declare and explain the behavior of fluids and gasses at different temperatures and pressures and draw and interpret phase diagrams. apply the concept of entropy in analyzing thermodynamic systems. explain the laws of thermodynamics, apply these to thermodynamic systems and interpret the effects. recognize a complicated (combined) thermodynamic system to produce work and/or heat/cold and explain the configuration. analyze the thermodynamic aspects of a complicated (combined) thermodynamic system from the viewpoint of the first law of thermodynamics. interpret the results of the analysis of a thermodynamic system, evaluate them and suggest adaptions to the system to improve it.
 Content
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } This is a part of module 2, ME 2 Energy and Materials of the Bachelor Mechanical Engineering.. See here for the compete description of the module.            Content Engineering Thermodynamics 1 Thermodynamics is a fascinating and exciting subject that deals with different forms of energy and their transformations, including work and heat/cold. It can be seen as the science of energy. The application area is very broad, ranging from chemical reactions and microscopic organisms to common household applications, like heating and cooling, as well as transportation vehicles and aircrafts or industrial installations like power plants for the generation of power and heat. Engineering thermodynamics is the application of thermodynamics to solve technical problems in the area of mechanical engineering. In practice, engineers use thermodynamics for the design of systems and installations used to transform energy into a different kind of energy. Think about steam power plants to produce electricity and heat, gas turbines for aircraft propulsion, internal combustion engines for cars, and systems for cooling or heating, but also more complex systems with various functions such as the combined production of heat/cooling and electricity. The course starts with the introduction of the thermodynamic conceptual framework, different forms of energy, and an introduction to the concept of entropy. The first law (energy conservation) and the second law (entropy growth) of thermodynamics, are discussed. After all the tools have been reviewed, thermodynamic cycles for the production of labor (electricity) and heat/cold are being built. Aimed is towards a rapid application of the matter so that can be started with the project. The theoretical background and the formal meaning or derivation of formulas and concepts follows in the next module, where the course of Engineering Thermodynamics will be continued. Non-ME students can take this course if they meet the entry requirements. If they do this course without doing the course Modelling and Programming 2 (202300057) they should enroll in the course: 2020001388 - Engineering Thermodynamics 1 – PB - 2020001388. Also ME-premaster student enroll in Engineering Thermodynamics 1 – PB – 2020001388
