Course Detail

MA2007 Thermodynamics

This is a core mechanical engineering course covering the basic concepts and principles of thermodynamics and its major applications. You are taught how to use second law to describe irreversible processes. You will be introduced to ideal gas mixtures and their applications in the analyses of psychrometry. You will learn to evaluate closed systems and steady-flow open systems of basic thermodynamic devices and processes on the basis of the first and second law of thermodynamics, analyse thermodynamic cycles and apply them to power and refrigeration systems. You will learn how to describe and analyse combustion systems. You will develop necessary skills and abilities to analyse and solve realistic engineering problems using thermodynamic principles.
