Designing and Building of a Thermodynamicaly Open System Experimental Apparatus
Student: Akın Çapar
An open system is defined as a system in which mass can enter and/or leave thru the boundary of a system in thermodynamics. There are many examples of an open system around us. In this project, you are asked to design and build an experimental apparatus for an open system that allows heat, work and mass transfers. The experimental apparatus should be able to measure voltage and current values for the electrical work energy; temperature differences between inlet and exit of the system for the heat energy and mass flow rate for mass transfer calculations. All measured data need to be processed further for 1st and 2nd law efficiency calculations and exported as a txt file.
Required Qualifications and Skills:
- have knowledge of fundamental thermodynamics and fluid mechanics concepts
- needs to be interested in sensors, DAQ systems and programming
