IMEC-1330L Laboratorio de Termodinámica

Thermodynamics is the first course of a series of four mandatory courses in the area of Energy Conversion. This course focuses on the understanding of the first and second laws of thermodynamics for the analysis of basic macroscopic systems (closed and open) and their interaction with the surroundings. As such, emphasis will be given to the study of different energy forms and its transfer through the boundaries of a system as heat or work. Additionally, the properties of pure substances will be studied. The course will finish with the study of power cycles (Otto’s cycle, Diesel cycle and Brayton’s cycle).
