Prerequisites: MAE 210 Thermodynamics


Class Meetings: MW 3:30-4:45, THN A119 (note this course is taught in the video classroom and is broadcast to offsite locations)


Course Description: This course will build upon the foundation of physics and thermodynamics courses and develop further understanding of the conversion of available energy into desired forms by technology, with emphasis on energy-related issues in American society and an appreciation of the economics of these systems. The course will include thermodynamics of reactive and non-reactive, multicomponent systems; energy cycles; thermodynamic analysis of energy conversion systems; energy sources and utilization, traditional and non-traditional combustion fuels, and alternative energy forms.


Textbook: TBD

Course Outline (Potential Topics)

1)

Energy sources, classification and utilization




2)

Growth and prediction




3)

Review of Thermodynamics




4)

Conventional energy (power plant)




5)

Combustion




6)

Nuclear energy (fission)




7)

Geothermal energy




8)

Ocean energy and wind energy




9)

Solar energy (photovoltaics)




10)

Chemical energy (fuel cells)




11)

Thermoelectrics




12)

Economic considerations




13)

Environmental concerns and impact studies





General Class Structure: Following an introduction to energy, basic thermodynamics will be reviewed and the Rankine, Otto, Carnot and Stirling Cycles will be covered. After this initial emphasis on more conventional energy, other energy sources will be surveyed and economic consideration and environmental concerns will be introduced. The final portion of the class will include many guest lecturers providing technology specific information on a variety of topics and textbook material will be supplemented with current literature.


Homework: Homework problems will be assigned regularly. Homework will not be pledged.


Honor System: Students are encouraged to work on their own on homework to the greatest extent possible, although collaboration with other students may at times be educational and acceptable. The honor code will apply to the pledged problem sets in the same manner as an open book, take-home exam. Assistance on the pledged problem sets may only be received from the instructor and/or TA.


Examinations: For all graded assignments there will be a version for students enrolled in 312 and a more involved and advanced version for students enrolled in 692. There will be an open book mid-term and final exam. There will also be a few pledged problem sets throughout the semeste.. Finally, there will be reports and/or assignments related to the alternative energy sources discussed in the final portion of the course.


Tentative Grade Distributions: Pledged Problem Sets 25%

Mid-Term 20%

Homework 15%

Reports/summaries 20%

Final 20%
