This is a graduate level course where students are expected to master classical thermodynamics by way of solving extended problems using software tools. Statistical thermodynamics concepts are also introduced and exercised.
- First law
- Second law
- Finite time thermodynamics
- Chemical reactions
- Higher order equations of state
- Statistical thermodynamics
The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:
- Demonstrate a firm understanding of fundamental classical thermodynamics.
- Collaboratively calculate solutions to steady state and transient problems using software tools.
- Translate between classical thermodynamic and statistical thermodynamic models.
- Demonstrate awareness of the current state of the field of thermodynamics, including active research areas.
