MEM 410 Thermodynamic Analysis II Winter 2014
 This course covers thermodynamic analysis of ideal and real mixtures, real gases, reacting gases, and those requiring analysis of equilibrium.
Course Objectives:
 1. Determine and express composition and properties of gas mixtures. Apply equations of state to gas mixture analysis. 2. Apply Maxwell relations to thermodynamic issues including the Clapeyron equation, changes in thermodynamic properties and the Joule-Thompson coefficient. 3. Show how chemical and phase equilibrium explains combustion processes and can be applied to other chemical reactions. 4. Review first law analysis of combustion processes including adiabatic flame temperature determination. Introduce second law analysis of combustion.

Contribution to Professional Component:
 Contributes toward the 1
 year of engineering topics appropriate to developing the ability to work in the thermal systems area. Prepares students for classes in thermal system design.
Relationship to Program Outcomes:
Outcome a-k Content Explanation
a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering 2 This course requires the students to develop an understanding of thermodynamics and combustion. The student needs to apply mathematics, science and engineering knowledge to solve an array of  problems that relate to gas mixtures, equations of state, the Maxwell formulations of thermodynamics and the chemistry of combustion.  b. An ability to design and conduct experiments as well as to analyzed and interpret data 1 The combustion project, an in depth analysis project, introduces students to the analysis of data required to understand combustion as a function of pressure and equivalence ratio. Students explore combustion completeness and adiabatic flame temperature over arrange of pressures and equivalence ratios. c. An ability to design a system, component or  process to meet desired needs 2 The assigned design problems are always required to meet societal or industrial needs. d. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams 0  Not Applicable
