OBJECTIVES:
• To achieve an understanding of principles of thermodynamics and to be able to use it in accounting for the bulk behavior of the simple physical systems.
• To provide in-depth study of thermodynamic principles, thermodynamics of state, basic thermodynamic relations, Properties of pure substances
• To enlighten the basic concepts of heat transfer and propulsion cycles.

UNIT I

BASIC CONCEPT AND FIRST LAW

9

Concept of continuum, macroscopic approach, thermodynamic systems – closed, open and isolated. Property, state, path and process, quasi-static process, work, modes of work, Zeroth law of thermodynamics- concept of temperature and heat, internal energy, specific heat capacities, enthalpy - concept of ideal and real gases. First law of thermodynamics - applications to closed and open systems - steady flow processes with reference to various thermal equipments.

UNIT II

SECOND LAW AND ENTROPY

9

Second law of thermodynamics – kelvin planck and clausius statements of second law. Reversibility and irreversibility - carnot theorem. carnot cycle, reversed carnot cycle, efficiency, COP - thermodynamic temperature scale - clausius inequality, concept of entropy, entropy of ideal gas, principle of increase of entropy.

UNIT III

THERMODYNAMIC AVAILABILITY AND AIR STANDARD CYCLES

9

Basics – energy in non-flow processes: expressions for the energy of a closed system – equivalence between mechanical energy forms and exergy – flow of energy associated with heat flow – exergy consumption and entropy generation - exergy in steady flow processes: expressions for exergy in steady flow processes – exergy dissipation and entropy generation - otto, diesel, dual and brayton cycles - air standard efficiency - mean effective pressure.

UNIT IV

PROPERTIES OF PURE SUBSTANCE AND POWER CYCLE

8

Properties of pure substances – thermodynamic properties of pure substances in solid, liquid and vapour phases, phase rule, P-V, P-T, T-V, T-S, H-S diagrams, PVT surfaces, thermodynamic properties of steam - calculations of work done and heat transfer in non-flow and flow processes - standard rankine cycle, reheat and regeneration cycle.

UNIT V

BASICS OF PROPULSION AND HEAT TRANSFER

10

Classification of jet engines - simple jet propulsion system – thrust equation – specific impulse –ideal and non-ideal cycle analysis - conduction in parallel, radial and composite wall – basics of convective and radiation heat transfer.
