Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students get acquainted with details of gas thermodynamics, and they acquire some knowledge concerning issues of heat transfer. This knowledge is a prerequisite for deeper understanding of problems regarding efficient generation, transformation, and distribution of thermal energy.

Teaching methods



In the course, students will learn about thermodynamics of gases, thermal balance calculations and basics of heat transfer. The course is focused on practical applications such as heat machines, compressors, heat exchangers, etc. The acquired knowledge is a prerequisite for understanding the nature of economical heat recovery, its distribution and transformation to mechanical work. Acquired information is indispensable in a number of technical fields such as power generation, heating, automotive, construction, metallurgy, renewable resources, etc.
