This course is a required sophomore subject in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, designed to be taken in conjunction with the core lecture subject 3.012 Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering. The laboratory subject combines experiments illustrating the principles of quantum mechanics, thermodynamics and structure with intensive oral and written technical communication practice. Specific topics include: experimental exploration of the connections between energetics, bonding and structure of materials, and application of these principles in instruments for materials characterization; demonstration of the wave-like nature of electrons; hands-on experience with techniques to quantify energy (DSC), bonding (XPS, AES, FTIR, UV/vis and force spectroscopy), and degree of order (x-ray scattering) in condensed matter; and investigation of structural transitions and structure-property relationships through practical materials examples.

Modelling is about understanding the nature: our world, ourselves and our work. …

Modelling is about understanding the nature: our world, ourselves and our work. Everything that we observe has a cause (typically several) and has the effect thereof. The heart of modelling lies in identifying, understanding and quantifying these cause-and-effect relationships.

A model can be treated as a (selective) representation of a system. We create the model by defining a mapping from the system space to the model space, thus we can map system state and behaviour to model state and behaviour. By defining the inverse mapping, we may map results from the study of the model back to the system. In this course, using an overarching modelling paradigm, students will become familiar with several instances of modelling, e.g., mechanics, thermal dynamics, fluid mechanics, etc.

The course describes in a simple and practical way what non-equilibrium thermodynamics is and how it can contribute to engineering fields. It explains how to derive proper equations of transport from the second law of thermodynamics or the entropy production. The obtained equations are frequently more precise than used so far, and can be used to understand the waste of energy resources in central process units in the industry. The entropy balance is used to define the energy efficiency in energy conversion and create consistent thermodynamic models. It also provides a systematic method for minimizing energy losses that are connected with transport of heat, mass, charge and momentum. The entropy balance examines operation at the state of minimum entropy production and is used to propose some rules of design for energy efficient operation. For this course some knowledge of engineering thermodynamics is a prerequisite. The first and second law of thermodynamics and terms as entropy should be known before starting this course.

In this course, you will learn about phase relations as applied to oil and/or gas reservoir processes, enhanced oil recovery, gas pipeline transportation, natural gas processing and liquefaction, and other problems in petroleum production.

The focus of the course will be on equilibrium thermodynamics and its relevance to phase behavior predictions and phase equilibrium data description. We will attempt to apply phase behavior principles to petroleum production processes of practical interest, especially natural gas condensate systems.

Physical chemistry is the study of the underlying physical principles that govern the properties and behaviour of chemical systems. The knowledge of these principles is important and provide a framework for all branches of chemistry, whether we are synthesizing compounds in a research laboratory, manufacturing chemicals on an industrial scale or trying to understand the intricate biological processes in the cell. This module is intended to broaden your understanding of physical principles in chemistry. It deals with three main areas: thermodynamics, thermo chemistry and chemical kinetics. Studying thermodynamics enables the chemist to predict whether or not a reaction will occur when reactants are brought together under a specific set of conditions. Indeed industrial chemists often place more emphasis on speeding up the rate of a reaction than on its percentage yield. Organic chemists use kinetic studies to determine the mechanisms of reactions and to tell how fast products will be formed.

In this course, the student will learn about the three laws of thermodynamics, thermodynamic principles, ideal and real gases, phases of matter, equations of state, and state changes. The student will also take a look at chemical kinetics--a branch of study concerned with the rates of reactions and other processes--as well as kinetic molecular theory and statistical mechanics, which relate the atomic-level motion of a large number of particles to the average thermodynamic behavior of the system as a whole. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: State and use laws of thermodynamics; Perform calculations with ideal and real gases; Design practical engines by using thermodynamic cycles; Predict chemical equilibrium and spontaneity of reactions by using thermodynamic principles; Describe the thermodynamic properties of ideal and real solutions; Define the phases of matter, describe phase changes, and interpret/construct phase diagrams; Relate macroscopic thermodynamic properties to microscopic states by using the principles of statistical thermodynamics; Describe reaction rates and then do calculations to determine them; Relate reaction kinetics to potential reaction mechanism; Calculate the temperature dependence of rate constants and relate that to activation energy; Describe a variety of complex reactions; Describe catalysis; Describe enzymatic catalysis.

Doelstelling van dit college is een introductie te geven in de theorie …

Doelstelling van dit college is een introductie te geven in de theorie van de Thermodynamica, een van de fundamentele werktuigbouwkunde vakken. De Thermodynamica behandelt energie vraagstukken en relaties tussen de eigenschappen van materialen. In dit college wordt voor een ingenieurs aanpak van de Thermodynamica gekozen: onderwerp van studie zijn systemen en hun interactie met de omgeving. Naast gesloten systemen krijgen open systemen veel aandacht. Thermodynamica wordt, in combinatie met stromingsleer en warmte- en stofoverdracht, ingezet om bijvoorbeeld automotoren, turbines, compressoren, pompen, elektriciteit opwekkinginstallaties, cryogenische-, koel- en klimaat-installaties en duurzame energieconversie installaties te analyseren en ontwerpen. De beginselen van de Thermodynamica maken het mogelijk om de ontwerpen van energie gerelateerde werktuigbouwkundige apparaten en systemen te optimaliseren voor het betreffende doel.

De thermodynamische relaties voor compressibele stoffen en de fasendiagrammen voor pure stoffen worden behandeld. Enkele voorbeelden van toestandsvergelijkingen worden behandeld (de viriaal vergelijking, vergelijkingen met twee constanten en vergelijkingen met meerdere constanten). De grootheden Helmholtz energie en Gibbs energie worden geintroduceerd. De Gibbs vergelijking is de basis om tot een beschrijving van evenwichten (van mengsels) te komen. De condities van evenwicht van pure componenten en van mengsels wordt afgeleidt. Uitgaande van de totale differentialen worden partiele afgeleide uit gedrukt in termen van thermodynamische grootheiden. Voor de berekening van processen, zo als compressie, expansie enz worden uitdrukkingen afgeleid voor delta h, delta s en delta u (waarbij delta voor de deviatie="departure" van ideaal gas gedrag staat). Het wordt getoond hoe deze uitdrukkingen (of dimensieloze diagrammen van deze grootheden) voor de berekening van processen gebruikt kunnen worden. Ook wordt de grootheid exergie gepresenteerd, een grootheid die gebaseerd is op de tweede hoofdwet van de thermodynamica, tezamen met enkele nuttige grootheden en hulpmiddelen voor het uitvoeren van exergie analyses (exergie verlies, exergie rendementen, waardediagram). In dit college wordt de definitie van exergie beperkt tot de thermo-mechanische exergie. Het principe van het stoomturbine kringproces wordt getoond en mogelijkheden voor de optimalisatie van dit kringproces worden besproken, zoals de keuze van stoomdruk en -temperatuur en de toepassing van stoomoververhitting en -herverhitting.
