Applied thermodynamics and heat transfer. Basic principles and their applications for resolving engineering problems.
"Applied Thermodynamics" addresses the scientific and technological processes related to energy. In almost all industrial processes require the application of the Principles of Thermodynamics. Knowledge of these principles is essential, for example, to perform an energy analysis of power systems for electricity generation, combustion engines or cooling cycles.
The study of the thermodynamic properties of working fluids flowing through the devices, water, air, refrigerant gases and gas mixtures, it is essential to analyze the behavior of thermal systems.
Knowledge of whether a thermodynamic process may or may not occur in reality it is essential for designing new processes, as well as knowledge of the greatest benefits can be obtained from the various devices that make up a power plant, and what are the causes make it impossible to obtain such high performance.
