      Past QE111 examinations questions on open systems and application of steady flow energy equation and the answers to the past questions are uploaded

      Tutorial on Thermodynamic properties of substances and the answers to the tutorial are uploaded

 

Sections taught by Prof. R. Shanthini:

1) Thermodynamic Substances

Contents: The perfect gas and real gases, specific heat at constant volume and constant pressure, gas constant, and ratio of specific heats; Solids and liquids; Equilibrium between phases, vapours, and use of steam tables.

Time allocated: 4 hrs of lectures and 1 hr of tutorial

Course material: Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 of Thermodynamics for Beginners by R. Shanthini, with Figure 6.1, Figure 6.2 and Figure 6.3 for pages 73, 75 and 79 of Chapter 6, respectively.

 

2) Application of the First Law to open systems

Contents: Steady flow energy equation; Steady flow expansion devices with work and heat interactions: ducts, diffusers, nozzles, mixing devices, heat exchangers, and throttling values; Unsteady flow energy equations; Charging and discharging of pressure vessels.

Time allocated: 5 hrs of lectures and 1 hr of tutorial

Course material: Chapter 9 and Chapter 10 of Thermodynamics for Beginners by R. Shanthini

 

To get an idea about the real-life applications of what you have learned in this course,

read about Thermodynamic analyses of Power Plants

Course material: Chapter 12 of Thermodynamics for Beginners by R. Shanthini

 

To get to know the basics in the thermodynamic analyses of Gas Turbine Power Plants,

take a look at the PowerPoint presentation and ExcelSheet calculations used by me at the Training Programme on Thermodynamics for AES Kelanitissa Plant Engineers held at the Combined Power Plant producing 168 MW electric power from a Combined Cycle Thermal Power Plant, AES Kelanitissa (Private) Limited, Sri Lanka
