TEP4125 - Engineering Thermodynamics 2
Thermodynamics 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 properities that can be measured (mass, volume, pressure, temperature) and properties that can not be measured (energy, enthalpy, entropy, etc.). Thermodynamic equilibrium; chemical equilibrium, inclomplete combustion, pollutant formation; phase equilibrium.
The student gets knowledge about:
Indoor climate, energy usage.
Thermal power generation.
Combustion and combustion products.
Processes for food engineering.
Gas processing, natural gas technology.
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 environment.
- Further work on energy processes and other thermodynamic processes.
The student should have an understanding for:
- How to use thermodynamics for old and new problems.
- How tables, diagrams and computer programs are made and should be used.
- That thermodynamics is general such that different technical devices and processes apply the the same basic knowledge.
Learning methods and activities
Lectures. Exercises (individual or in groups) based on Thermodynamics 1 and 2.
Further on evaluation
The final evaluation (letter grades) will be based on a portfolio containing written final examination (80% weight) and written midterm exam (20% weight), according to the percent-point method. A postponed final written exam ("kontinuasjonseksamen") can be changed to an oral exam. Valid absence at the midterm exam will give a re-sit midterm exan before the end of the semester. If the course is re-taken another year, both midterm exam and final exam have to be taken again. The set of approved exercises are valid for two years after the year of approval.
Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
Recommended previous knowledge
The course is based on and is a continuation of course TEP4120 Thermodynamics 1.
