Welcome to MECH.5491

Advanced Thermodynamics with Professor Agar

The primary objective of Advanced Thermodynamics course is to prepare upper level engineering students to effectively solve problems that are directly related to fundamental science and engineering of thermodynamic systems. The course is expanded upon to the first and second laws of thermodynamics that are normally covered in undergraduate thermodynamics courses. A significant emphasis will be placed on the concepts of entropy generation and its mechanisms with respect to single- and multi-phase, and chemically reacting and non-reacting systems are studied. Furthermore, the methods of entropy-generation minimization for commonly studied thermodynamic systems will be discussed.
