Rationale
Thermodynamics is a science of energy transfer and its effect on physical properties of substances. It is based upon observations of common experiences of energy (mainly heat) transfer. Thermodynamic laws have been formulated based on these experiences. In this course, work and heat transfer with changes in associated properties is studied based on laws of thermodynamics. This course will provide an understanding of the basic principles of thermodynamics which is must for understanding of major fields of mechanical engineering and technology notably in steam and nuclear power plants, internal combustion engines, gas turbines, air conditioning, refrigeration, gas dynamics, jet propulsion, compressors and energy conversion in different devices.
