Fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Heat Engines



The majority of the engines used in the world today to generate power or to provide transportation are either gas turbines, steam systems or internal combustion engines, all of which use thermodynamic processes to generate the power required. We introduce you to the principles and laws of thermodynamics and heat transfer and then shows how they can be applied to engineering systems. You explore system definition, the fundamental laws of thermodynamics and the application of the non-flow and steady flow energy equations using the ideal gas equations and steam tables. You learn about the different mechanisms of heat transfer and looks at the performance of heat exchangers before concluding with an investigation of heat engine cycles, principally those used in the internal combustion engines.
