Engineering Thermodynamics


With appropriate reminders and complements of

thermodynamics, this course focuses on the behaviour of

various industrial thermal systems :

- engines with continuous mass transfer (compressors,


- condensable steam engines (steam-powered engines,

refrigerating machines…), with the objective to optimize

them, notably from an energetic efficiency point of view.


Understanding the behavior of classical thermal systems

and being able to design and optimize them.

Needed prerequisite

Fundamentals in Thermodynamics (1st year)
Thermodynamics and Thermodynamic Analysis (1st year)

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...
