OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this course are as follows: a) To provide a thorough understanding of the application of classical thermodynamics to practical problems. Topics include transient energy analysis, availability (exergy) analysis, ideal mixtures, reacting systems and equilibrium analysis. Applications include refrigeration and air conditioning systems, power plants, internal combustion engines, and gas turbine engines. b) To provide an introductory treatment of thermodynamics for an expanded range of materials including gas mixtures, and reacting systems. c) To provide limited design experience for systems requiring significant considerations of thermodynamics. 3. TEXT: Moran, M.J., and Shapiro, H.N., Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics , 6 th ed., J. Wiley & Sons, NY (2008). 4. PREREQUISITE: ME 200 or equivalent. 5. COMPUTER SOFTWARE: A non-linear equation solver with built-in thermodynamic properties and graphics capabilities will be used to analyze selected application problems in this course. This computer program, called Engineering Equation Solver (EES), is available on the PCs in the ME Computer Laboratories. Students may make copies of this program for personal use. Instructions for copying and executing EES are attached. Help with EES is available through the on-line help command within the EES software, and also through a complete EES Users Manual (available at the following site: http://www.fchart.com/ ). Note: You do not need to purchase the optional software that comes with the text. We will not use the Moran and Shapiro software in ME 300.

ME 300 COURSE POLICY AND SYLLABUS FALL 2011 2 You will need an ECN UNIX account in order to access EES on the PCs in the ME Computer Laboratories. If you do not already have an ECN account see a consultant in room ME 2042 during the first week of classes to establish one. An ECN account will also be necessary to access the ME 300 website ( https://engineering.purdue.edu/me300/ ). Check this website daily as it will be used by the instructors as a means of communicating with students. 6. ASSIGNMENTS: Reading assignments are provided in the course syllabus. As basic preparation for each lecture, students should read the assigned section of the textbook before coming to class. Representative problems will be assigned from the textbook after each lecture. These problems will be illustrative of the general material and of problems found on exams.
