# Thermodynamics

## Code

ME-TER1

## Version

1.1

## Offered by

Mechanical Engineering

## ECTS

5### Prerequisites

For Mechanical students: Basic Engineering Mathematics and Physics.

For GBE students: GBE-ENB-M2

### Main purpose

### Knowledge

Describe,

construct and interpret a thermodynamic system. Apply and understand the main

laws and fundamental concepts of thermodynamics. Calculate and depict processes

for ideal gas and water vapour. Apply elementary flow theory for calculations

and dimension of pipe systems and pumps. Calculate and dimension heat

exchangers/heat transmission. Calculate main data for plants that use water

vapour for production of power and heat.

### Skills

Analyse

a thermodynamic system and select relevant theory in order to enable the

student to calculate variables and main capacities for the system. Use the

thermodynamic calculation as basis of calculation of geometric dimensions for

the system or selection of components. Use EES software for thermodynamic

calculations

### Competences

The

student will be able to identify energy aspects in mechanical projects and

solve simple thermodynamic problems and/or communicate with engineers and

companies about energy aspects.

### Topics

### Teaching methods and study activities

General description

Instruction in class: 4 lessons a week for 12 weeks, corresponding to 110 hours of work for the student. The course is based on student theory studies at home followed by problem based exercises in class, in groups or individually.
