Description

This course provides an introduction to the concept of energy and the laws governing the transfers and transformations of energy. The course begins with an emphasis on thermodynamic properties and the First and Second Law analysis of systems and control volumes. This follows with an integration of these concepts into the analysis of basic power cycles. The course continues with an emphasis on the analysis of power and refrigeration cycles and the application of basic principles to engineering problems.

The course is structured with four one-hour lectures and a one-hour tutorial per week.
The content of this course is structured to follow internationally accepted standards and is based on the content of the existing curriculum. The standard sequence of topics from the standard thermodynamic texts will be used for the course outline.

Lectures will cover the following topics in detail:

1 Concepts and Definitions, Measurements
2 Energy and the First Law of Thermodynamics
3 Evaluating Properties
4 Control Volume Analysis Using Energy
5 The Second Law of Thermodynamics
6 Using Entropy
7 Vapor Power Systems
8 Gas Power Systems
9 Refrigeration and Heat Pump Systems

Pre-requisites

Subject to the approval of the Dean of Engineering and Forestry.

Additional Course Outline Information

Academic integrity

Harassment
* Harassment of any sort will not be tolerated.  Each UC student is here to learn and to experience a friendly and supportive community.
* It is every student's right to expect: respect and courtesy from staff and other students, including freedom from harassment of any sort; fair treatment; the ability to speak out about any issues that concern them, without fear of consequences for their safety and well-being.
* Furthermore, each student has the responsibility to: respect the rights and property of others; attend to their own health and safety, and that of others; and behave in a manner towards each other that does not reflect badly on the student body or the University.
* If you, or someone you know, has experienced harassment, please talk to your lecturers, directors of study, or head of department.


Dishonest Practice
* Plagiarism, collusion, copying, and ghost writing are unacceptable and dishonest practices.
* Plagiarism is the presentation of any material (test, data, figures or drawings, on any medium including computer files) from any other source without clear and adequate acknowledgment of the source.
* Collusion is the presentation of work performed in conjunction with another person or persons, but submitted as if it has been completed only by the named author(s).
* Copying is the use of material (in any medium, including computer files) produced by another person(s) with or without their knowledge and approval.
* Ghost writing is the use of another person(s) (with or without payment) to prepare all or part of an item submitted for assessment.

Do not engage in dishonest practices. The Department reserves the right to refer dishonest practices to the University Proctor and where appropriate to not mark the work.
The University regulations on academic integrity and dishonest practice can be found here.
