16.004 Unified Engineering: Thermodynamics


Class Info

Presents fundamental principles and methods of thermodynamics for aerospace engineering, and engineering analysis and design concepts applied to aerospace systems. Topics include thermodynamic state of a system, forms of energy, work, heat, the first law of thermodynamics, heat engines, reversible and irreversible processes, entropy and the second law of thermodynamics, ideal and non-ideal cycle analysis, two-phase systems, and introductions to thermochemistry and heat transfer. Experiential lab and aerospace system projects provide additional aerospace context.

This class has 18.02, 8.02, 18.03, 18.034, 3.091, and 5.111 as prerequisites.

16.004 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by D. L. Darmofal and Z. S. Spakovszky.

Lecture occurs 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Thursdays in 32-141.
