ME 420 Advanced Thermodynamics



In this course the fundamental laws developed in ME 320  (Thermodynamics) will be used to study, analyze, and design practical engineering devices. The course will focus primarily on power plants, heating and air conditioning systems, and internal combustion engines. To support analysis of these devices, new topics in the areas of combustion, air-water vapor mixtures, and advanced engineering cycles will be introduced. If time permits, an introduction to the behavior of substances at high velocities (near or above the speed of sound) will also be covered. 2 lecture hours. 3 laboratory hours. Prerequisite: 2.0 or higher in ME 320 .

3 credit hours
