OBJECTIVE : To educate the students in the area of thermodynamics as applied to various Chemical Engineering Processes.
1. FUNDAMENTALS OF THERMODYNAMICS:
Laws of thermodynamics as applied to open and closed system - reversible and irreversible processes - state and point function - Absolute entropy - Thermodynamic property changes for ideal gas.
2. PVT RELATIONS:
PVT relationships for gases and liquids - equations of state - Z charts - gas mixtures. Compression - expansion. Refrigeration: Principles and application.
3. THERMODYNAMIC RELATIONS:
Thermodynamic relations - Maxwell's relations - Jacobian algebra - estimation of thermodynamic properties.
4. PHASE EQUILIBRIA:
Phase equilibria - pure component and mixtures - Latent heat correlation - van Laar, Margules equations - Gibbs' - Duhem equation - consistency tests - partially miscible and immiscible systems - Azeotropes - retrograde condensation - thermodynamic diagrams.
5. CHEMICAL EQUILIBRIA:
Chemical equilibria - heat effects, industrial reactions - Free energy calculations - Homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions - Industrial reactions like NH3 synthesis, SO3 production etc.
