A. Bhatia, B.E.
Ever wondered how the refrigeration process, mechanical engines, power plants work or why chemical reactions go one way and not the other! The answer to many such curious questions is the study of “Thermodynamics”. This 4-hr course provides the theoretical fundamentals of thermodynamics, particularly the energy conversions heat to work and work to heat are discussed. This course lays the groundwork for subsequent studies in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and statistical thermodynamics, and prepares readers to effectively apply thermodynamics in the practice of engineering.
This course material is based entirely on US Department of Energy training materials DOE-HDBK-1012/3-92, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Fluid Flow, Volume 1 of 3. The volumes 2 & 3 of the handbook have been separately listed
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
