Thermodynamics II for mixtures and mixing processes. Moist air, heating, and ventilation. Exergy, irreversibility, exergy analysis. Chemical reactions. Combustion, mass and energy conversion, heating values, flame temperature, exergy, and irreversibility. Thermodynamic relations; relations between properties that can be measured (mass, volume, pressure, temperature) and properties that can not be measured (energy, enthalpy, entropy, etc.). Thermodynamic equilibrium; chemical equilibrium, incomplete combustion, pollutant formation; phase equilibrium.
The student gets insight into:
– Thermodynamics of mixtures for ideal gases, including moist air.
– Combustion and other reactions.
– Thermodynamics of real gases and mixtures of real gases.
– Thermodynamic relations, properties, and data.
– Exergy analysis.
– Chemical and phase equilibrium.
The student should be able to:
– Determine thermodynamic properties for relevant substances and mixtures.
– Define and analyze thermodynamic systems using the 1st and 2nd laws.
– Put up the balances for mass, energy, entropy, and exergy for technical systems and determine the involved quantities.
– Use the theory to solve practical engineering problems.
– Use the theory to understand processes in nature and the environment.
– Further, work on energy processes and other thermodynamic processes.
