Module summary

The module develops a knowledge of fundamental thermodynamic concepts. The irreversible thermodynamics will be the basis for an analysis of the real processes and the research problems. The module will help to extend the view on the processes occuring in the complex systems with an emphasize on the conjugated ones.

Module content
Lectures (15h):

Fundamental thermodynamic concepts. Thermodynamic Laws.
Reversible and irreversible processes.
Entropy balance in the closed and open systems.
Entropy generation in the heat and mass transfer processes.
Entropy generation minimization.
Linear processes. Onsager Theorem.
Conjugated processes. Curie Symmetry Principle.
Exergy concept and exergy balance in the closed and open systems.
Introduction to the statistical thermodynamics.

Seminar classes (15h):

Case studies of particular real systems or processes. They will be as close as possible to the topics being in the scope of PhD thesis. In general, they will base on the published scientific literature and will utilize the extended knowledge of thermodynamic concepts. The aim of studies, their realization and results will be presented together with the critical analysis of the assumptions, methods and conclusions. The discussion will be important element of the classes.

Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: The lecture contents is presented in the form of multimedial presentation in connection with the classical board lecture enriched with the display regarding particular problem. The knowledge is also transferred during the discussions moderated by the lecturer.
  • Seminar classes: Seminars base on the case studies conducted by the students working in the teams. Discussions and critical analyses are very important elements of the classes.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Lecture
The participation in the written credit is allowed after getting the positive grade from the seminar and confirmed participation in the lectures (the exception is discussed in other section). There will be three terms of written credit at the end of the classes. The positive grade is regulated by the AGH rules.

Seminar
Confirmed participation in the seminars (the exception is discussed in other section). Positive grade of the preparation and presentation of the assigned topic and also answering the questions and participation in the discussions.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Knowledge and understanding of previously realized material. Participation in the discussions. Asking the questions. Following the rules of PhD School regulations regarding the rights and obligations.
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Knowledge and understanding of previously realized material. Presentation of an analysis of particular case study. Working in a team. Participation in the discussions. Asking the questions. Following the rules of PhD School regulations regarding the rights and obligations.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Weighted average rating = 0.5· SR + 0.5· CR ·w
where: SR – seminar rate ; CR – writtin credit rate;
w – weight, w = 1 first term, w = 0.9 second term, w = 0.8 third term

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

Lecture
One excused absence is allowed. The student is obliged to analyzed and understand realized content by himself/herself.

Seminar
One excused absence is allowed. The student is obliged to prepare an essay on the given problem.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Knowledge regarding the fundamental thermodynamics, differential and integral calculus.
