More Thermodynamics and multicomponent systems


At the end of this module, the student will have become familiar with material, energy
and entropy balances for homogeneous closed systems
or open systems in steady-state conditions. He will know how to choose and define
the system associated with the problem studied, as well as the relevant variables .
He will master the behaviour of real fluids and the main thermodynamic diagrams,
and he will understand the operation of thermal machines.
He will have acquired the foundations allowing the calculation of phase equilibria
for multi-component systems occurring during unit operations (distillation,
absorption) and in the calculation of reactors (chemical and biological).
He will master the methods of calculation of chemical equilibria.

Needed prerequisite

Unit « Thermodynamics - fundamentals and applications » of the INSA first year curriculum or equivalent.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
