Undergraduate Course: Engineering Thermodynamics 2 (SCEE08006)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 8 (Year 2 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course provides a basic grounding in the principles and methods of Classical Thermodynamics. It concentrates on: understanding the thermodynamic laws in relation to familiar experience; phase change, ideal gas and flow processes; using sources of data like thermodynamic tables and charts; application of the basic principles to the operation of various engine cycles.
