ABE 20200 - Thermodynamics In Biological Engineering
Associated Term: Fall 2024
Learning Outcomes: 1. Understand basic principles of Mass, Energy, and Entropy balance equations to macro scale thermodynamic processes. 2. Apply the following concepts to solve problems in the biological engineering and biomedical engineering disciplines (First & Second Law of Thermodynamics; Open vs closed systems o Balances of mass, heat, work, and entropy/energy flow; Reversibility/irreversibility; Path dependence/independence). 3. Gain knowledge of main factors that determine numerical values of physical-chemical properties associated with bioprocesses. 4. Solve multiphysics and multi-scale problems for thermodynamic processes using the computer. 5. Develop the attitudinal dimensions of computational thinking. 6. Gain experience in working with non-linear systems and systems away from equilibrium.
