Unformatted text preview: MEEN 315 Principles of Thermodynamics REQUIRED OR ELECTIVE: Required course CATALOG DESCRIPTION: (2-2) Credit 3. Theory and application of energy methods in engineering; conservation of mass and energy; energy transfer by heat, work and mass; thermodynamic properties; analysis of closed and open systems; second law of thermodynamics and entropy; gas, vapor and refrigeration cycles. PREREQUISITES: MEEN 221; MATH 251 or 253. TEXTBOOK AND OTHER REQUIRED MATERIAL: Selected material from 1) Thermodynamics: an Engineering Approach by Cengel, Y.A. and Boles, M.A., 7 th ed., 2011, McGraw-Hill, New York, NY., 2) Engineering Equation Solver , by Klein, S. A., F-Chart Software, www.fChart.com . COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of this course, students should be able to: 1. look up thermodynamic properties in tables; 2. construct pressure-temperature, pressure-volume, or temperature-volume phase diagrams for pure substances; 3. indicate a process on an appropriate phase diagram; 4. use compressibility charts; 5. calculate expansion/compression work in a closed system; 6. apply conservation of energy to a closed system to determine heat transfer, work, or property changes; 7. use conservation of mass to determine change in mass of a system; 8. apply conservation of energy to an open system to determine heat transfer, work, or property changes;...
