## Version

2.0

## Offered by

Mechanical Engineering

## ECTS

5### Prerequisites

Basic Engineering Mathematics and Physics.

### 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.
