20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering And the mass flow rate is given by Where : V : velocity (m/s) A : cross sectional area (m2) v : specific volume (m3/Kg)

5 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Example: Air is flowing in a 0.2-m-diameter pipe at a uniform velocity of 0.1 m/s. The temperature is 25 ºC and the pressure 150 kPa. Determine the mass flow rate.

7 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Nozzle: A nozzle is a steady-state device whose purpose is to create a high velocity fluid stream at the expense of the fluid’s pressure. It is contoured in an appropriate manner to expand a flowing fluid smoothly to a lower pressure, thereby, increasing its velocity. There is no means to do any work – there are no moving parts. There is little or no change in PE and usually little or no heat transfer

8 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Diffuser: A steady-state diffuser is a device constructed to decelerate a high velocity fluid in a manner that results in an increase in pressure of the fluid. In essence, it is the exact opposite of a nozzle, and it may be thought of as fluid flowing in the opposite direction through a nozzle, with the opposite effects.

9 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Example: Air at 0.6 MPa and 200 ºC enters an insulated nozzle with a velocity of 50 m/s. It leaves at a pressure of 0.15 MPa and a velocity of 600 m/s. Determine the final temperature of the air.

10 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Turbine: A turbine is a rotary steady-state machine whose purpose is to produce shaft work at the expense of the pressure of the working fluid. Two general classes of turbines Steam turbines, in which the steam exiting the turbine passes to a condenser, where it is condensed to a liquid. Gas turbines, in which the gas usually exhausts to the atmosphere from the turbine.

11 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering In either type, the turbine exit pressure is fixed by the environment into which the working fluid exhausts, and the turbine inlet pressure has been reached by different ways (boiler, combustion).

12 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Compressor and Pump: The purpose of a steady-state compressor (gas) or pump (liquid) is the same: to increase the pressure of a fluid by putting in shaft work. The internal processes are essentially the opposite of the two processes occurring inside a turbine.

13 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering The working fluid enters the compressor at low pressure, moving into a set of rotation blades, from which it exits at high velocity, a result of the shaft work input to the fluid

14 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering 2nd law of thermodynamics


16 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering The second law acknowledges that processes proceed in a certain direction but not in the opposite direction Examples: A hot cup of coffee cools by virtue of heat transfer to the surroundings, but heat will not flow from the cooler surroundings to the hotter cup of coffee.

17 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Gasoline is used as a car drives up a hill, but the fuel level in the gasoline tank cannot be restored to its original level when the car go down the hill.

18 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering Consider the cycle shown, known from our experience to be impossible actually to complete.

19 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering These two examples lead us to a consideration of the heat engine and the refrigerator, which is also referred to as a heat pump. With the heat engine we can have a system that operates in a cycle and performs a net positive work and a net positive heat transfer. With the heat pump we can have a system that operates in a cycle and has heat transferred to it from a low-temperature body and heat transferred from it to a high-temp body though work is required to do this.

20 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering A simple steam power plant as a whole may be considered a heat engine. It has a working fluid (steam) to which and from which heat is transferred, and which does a certain amount of work as it undergoes a cycle.

21 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering In general, we say that efficiency is the ratio of output, the energy sought (work), to input, the energy that costs (cost of the fuel). Thermal efficiency is defined as Typical values for the thermal efficiency of real engines are about 35 – 50 % for large power plants, 30 – 35 % for gasoline engines, and 35 – 40 % for diesel engine.

22 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering The “efficiency” of a refrigerator is expressed in terms of the coefficient of performance A household refrigerator may have a coefficient of performance (COP) of about 2.5, whereas a deep freeze unit will be closer to 1.0

23 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering The Kelvin-Planck Statement: It is impossible to construct a device that will operate in a cycle and produce no effect other than the raising of a weight and the exchange of heat with a single reservoir.

24 Mechanical engineering
20/2/2008 Mechanical engineering The Clausius Statement: It is impossible to construct a device that operates in a cycle and produces no effect other than the transfer of heat from a cooler body to a hotter body. This statement is related to the refrigerator or heat pump. In effect, it states that it is impossible to construct a refrigerator that operates without an input of work. This also implies that the COP is always less than infinity.

25 The two statements of the second law are equivalent
The two statements of the second law are equivalent. The truth (violation) of each statement implies the truth (violation) of the other.

26 Carnot Cycle For an engine working between two reservoirs at different temperatures. It consists of two reversible isothermal and two reversible adiabatic processes. For a cycle : Undergoes isothermal expansion in 1-2 while absorbing heat from high temperature reservoir Undergoes adiabatic expansion in 2-3 Undergoes isothermal compression in 3-4 Undergoes adiabatic compression in 4-1.                                                                Heat is transferred to the working material during 1-2 (Q1) and heat is rejected during 3-4 (Q2). The thermal efficiency is thus ηth = W/Q1. Applying first law, we have, W = Q1 − Q2, so that ηth = 1 − Q2/Q1.

27 Carnot's principle states that
1. No heat engine working between two thermal reservoirs is more efficient than the Carnot engine, and 2. All Carnot engines working between reservoirs of the same temperature have the same efficiency. The proof by contradiction of the above statements come from the second law, by considering cases where they are violated. Since T and S are properties, you can use a T-S graph instead of a p-V graph to describe the change in the system undergoing a reversible cycle. We have, from the first law, dQ + dW = 0. Thus the area under the T-S graph is the work done by the system. Further, the reversible adiabatic processes appear as vertical lines in the graph, while the reversible isothermal processes appear as horizontal lines.

28 Rankine Cycle In the Rankine cycle, also called the standard vapor power cycle, the working fluid follows a closed cycle. We will consider water as a working substance. In the Rankine cycle, water is pumped from a low pressure to a high pressure using a liquid pump. This water is then heated in the boiler at constant pressure where its temperature increases and it is converted to superheated vapor. This vapor is then expanded in an expander to generate work. This expander can be a turbine or a reciprocating (i.e. piston) machine such as those used in older steam locomotive or ship. The output of the expander is then cooled in a condenser to the liquid state and fed to the pump. The Rankine cycle differs from the Carnot cycle in that the input to the pump is a liquid (it is cooled more in the condenser). This allows the use of a small, low power pump due to the lower specific volume of liquid compared to steam. Also, the heat transfer in the boiler takes place mainly as a result of a phase change, compared to the isothermal heating of the ideal gas in the Carnot cycle, so that the efficiency is quite good (even though it is still lower than the Carnot efficiency). The amount of heat transferred as the liquid is heated to its boiling point is very small compared to the heat transfer during phase change. The steam is superheated so that no liquid state exists inside the turbine. Condensation in the turbine can be devastating as it can cause corrosion and erosion of the blades.


30 Otto Cycle Diesel Cycle Dual Cycle Gas Turbine Cycle (or Joule-Brayton Cycle)

31 Refrigeration Cycles The ideal refrigeration cycle is reverse of Carnot cycle, working as a heat pump instead of as a heat engine. COP (efficiency) = Ql / W = Tl / (Th – Tl) (for Carnot) However, there are practical difficulties in making such a system work. The gas refrigeration cycle is used in aircraft to cool cabin air. The ambient air is compressed and then cooled using work from a turbine. The turbine itself uses work from the compressed air, further cooling it. The output of the turbine as well as the air which is used to cool the output of the compressor is mixed and sent to the cabin. The Rankine vapor-compression cycle is a common alternative to the ideal Carnot cycle
