MSE-204 / 4 credits
Teacher: Tileli Vasiliki
This course establishes the basic concepts of thermodynamics and defines the main state functions. The concepts are then applied to the study of phase diagrams of various systems.
1. Thermodynamic system and the laws of thermodynamics. Work and Heat. Reversibility.
2. Auxiliary functions and their relationships. Chemical potential.
3. Treatment of mixtures. Molar and partial molar variables.
4. Thermodynamics of gases. Ideal and real solutions
5. Introduction to phases
6. Single component phase diagrams.
7. Binary phase diagrams.
8. Metastability of phases.
9. Reacting systems.
Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering
Various courses of the Materials science and engineering section
By the end of the course, the student must be able to:
- Analyze a thermodynamics problem
- Compute the changes in entropy, enthalpy and Gibbs free energy
- Construct a phase diagram
- Interpret the chemical potential
