Fundamentals of equilibrium thermodynamics; Zeroth, First, and Second Laws. Work, heat, internal energy, enthalpy, thermodynamic potential functions; heat transfer mechanisms, phase diagrams, equations of state and property tables, power systems, refrigeration, heat pump systems. Reversible and irreversible processes, Carnot cycle, entropy, exergy.
1. Explain the first law of thermodynamics and apply it to closed systems to calculate parameters such as work, heat transfer, or internal energy.
2. Explain the first law of thermodynamics and apply it to open systems to calculate parameters such as
mass flow rate, work, heat transfer, or enthalpy .
3. Explain the second law of thermodynamics and apply it to closed and open systems to calculate
parameters such as work, heat transfer, or entropy .
4. Explain and apply the liquid, vapor and ideal gas properties of substances and associated phase diagrams.
5. Demonstrate the proper use of thermodynamic property tables .
6. Explain the concept of entropy and why entropy increases for real processes .
7. Explain the concept of exergy and demonstrate that excrgy increases for various processes.
8. Analyze cycles including the Otto, Diesel , Brayton , Rank ine, and vapor-compression
refrigeration cycles, calculating specified parameters such as work , efficiency/coefficient of performance ,
quality, and heat transfer.
9. Understand the ASME Code of Engineering Ethics, Professional Engineering certification and method s
for implementing engineering improvement s (e.g. lessons learned, incident and accident reports).
