Contents  a) Thermodynamics Fundamentals Fundamentals of thermodynamic e.g. open and closed systems, steadystate processing, state of matter, heat, molecular agitations, ideal gases, real gases; thermodynamic properties (internal energy, enthalpy, free energy, free enthalpy, entropy, specific heat); first and second law of thermodynamics for a closed system; thermodynamic relations (Gibbs equations, Maxwell's equations, characteristic functions, general expressions of S, U and H, general relationship between Cp and Cv); thermodynamic equilibrium phases (chemical potentials); state equations applied to pure fluids (state equation of ideal gases); thermodynamics of mixtures (mixture of ideal gases, ideal solutions); first law of thermodynamics for open systems (mass and energy balance); second law of thermodynamics for open systems (entropy balance sheet); exergy analysis (generation of entropy and exergy destruction, application to steady flows and closed systems); gas turbine (operating principle, Brayton cycle, inverted Brayton cycle), steam turbine (block diagram, Rankine cycles); engines; refrigeration machines, singlestage and twostage vapor compression (schematic diagrams, thermodynamic cycles in PH and TS diagrams, twostage compression and expansion); cryogenic thermodynamic processes; liquefaction of air (Linde and Claude cycles); production of dry ice. b) Heat Transfer Fundamentals
Fluid specifications, dimensions and units; the basic law of the hydrostatic; the applications (pressure variation, measuring pressure, hydrostatic force on a surface); fluid kinematics; dynamics of perfect incompressible fluids (Bernoulli equation, applications e.g. speed measurement); Euler theorem; dynamic of real incompressible fluids (Couette experience, laminar viscous flow, Poiseuille flow); concept of loss and singular linear load; boundary layer (concept of the boundary layer, local and global equations of the boundary layer, characteristics of the boundary layer, accurate and approximate solutions of the boundary layer); similitude and dimensional analysis; dynamics of elastic fluids (unidirectional flow); shockwave.
