OBJECTIVES:

• Aero Thermodynamics study includes quantitative analysis of machine and processes for transformation of energy and between work and heat.
• Laws of thermodynamics would be able to quantify through measurement of related properties, to these energies and their interactions.
• To develop basic concept of air cycle, gas turbine engines and heat transfer.

Second law of thermodynamics – Kelvin Planck and Clausius statements of second law. Reversibility and Irreversibility, Thermal reservoir, Carnot theorem. Carnot cycle, Reversed Carnot cycle, efficiency, COP, Thermodynamic temperature scale – Clausius inequality, Concept of entropy, Entropy change for various processes. Mixing of fluids.

## UNIT III AIR STANDARD CYCLES                                  8

Otto, Diesel, Dual, Ericsson, Atkinson, Stirling and Brayton cycles – air standard efficiency – mean effective pressure.

## UNIT IV FUNDAMENTALS OF VAPOUR POWER CYCLES                                                                            9
