    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • This course introduces the fundamental concepts/theories on the thermodynamics of materials, from the basic concepts of enthalpy, entropy, free energy, and the basic laws of thermodynamics, to the behaviors of the systems including equilibrium, phase transformation, chemical reactions, mixing, cooling etc. Statistic mechanics is also introduced to explain the basic rules of thermodynamics from the microscopic aspect. Topics include: First, Second, and Third Law of thermodynamics, concepts of systems, Gibbs free energy, equilibrium, solution, dilute solutions, mixing, phase equilibrium, phase rules, phase diagrams, statistical mechanics, and surface phenomena. Specific applications of these basic concepts in air conditioning, battery electrodes, desalination, and metallurgy etc. are discussed.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:

      1. To understand the fundamental and basic principles of thermodynamics.
      2. To lean to apply the basic principles and methods of thermodynamics in the study and the R&D of materials.
      3. To understand the phase rules and the phase diagrams, as well as the application of the phase diagrams in materials study.
      4. To cultivate the ability of discovering the potential of existing materials and of developing new materials.
