Objectives
This course applies the fundamental principles of thermodynamics presented in ENGR 251 to areas
of particular interest to mechanical engineers. Topics covered are: advanced cycles, real gases,
non-reacting gaseous mixtures, and related theory. Prerequisites of this course are COMP 212 &amp;
ENGR 251.

Lecture notes, Assignments, Labs and General notes: Lecture notes will be available on the
course website. Problem solving is an essential part of this course; you are encouraged to discuss
the general principles involved in the homework sets with one another. Solutions will be available
on the web after the due date of each assignment. Quiz one (during Monday’s tutorials of
October 06, 2008) will cover assignment problems from topic numbers 2, and 3, and quiz two
(during Monday’s tutorials of November 17, 2008) will cover assignments 4 to 8.
The laboratories will start on Monday, September 15, which is week 2. A lab manual describing all
experiments and providing instructions concerning each one, can be downloaded from the course
website. To take full benefit from the lab., the students are urged to study carefully each experiment
before performing it in the lab. The students have to get the lab. instructor's signature on their data
sheet.
