This is Part–V of the book: “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”.

Here, Real and Ideal gases and Gas mixtures are dealt with.

Very useful information on Real and Ideal gases and Equations of state are compiled.

Other topics covered are: ‘compressibility factor’ and ‘principle of corresponding states’, Internal energy, Enthalpy and Specific heats for Ideal gases, properties of mixtures of ideal gases. Dalton’s Law, Gibbs-Dalton Law, Avogadro’s Law etc are stated. Procedures to calculate sp. heats, apparent Molecular weight, Gas constant, internal energy, enthalpy etc of a mixture of ideal gases is explained.

A very useful EES Function to determine Compressibility factor, Z when reduced temp, Tr and reduced pressure, Pr are given, is given in Appendix of chapter 9, and its use is explained with an example.

Above topics are illustrated by solving several problems using Mathcad, EES and TEST software.

1. Real and ideal gases and gas mixtures
1. Introduction
2. Ideal, Perfect and Real Gases
3. Ideal Gas Laws and Property diagrams for an Ideal (or perfect) gas [1, 2]
4. Ideal gas equation of state
5. Deviation from Ideal gas behavior – Compressibility factor
6. Equations of state for ‘Real gases’
7. Internal energy (u) and enthalpy (h) of an Ideal gas
8. Specific heats of Ideal gases
9. Some Processes with Ideal gases: (See Chapter 4)
10. Properties of Mixtures of Ideal gases [18]
12. Problems solved with EES
13. Problems solved with TEST
14. REFERENCES
2. Appendix

Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar

Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Karnataka Regional Engineering College, Surathkal, Karnataka, India, in the year 1965. He obtained M.Sc (cryogenis) from University of Southampton, U.K. and Ph.D. (cryogenics) from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.

He is a Fellow of Institution of Engineers (India), Life Member, Indian Society for Technical Education, and a Foundation Fellow of Indian Cryogenics Council.

He has worked in India and abroad on large projects in the areas involving heat transfer, fluid flow, vacuum system design, cryo-pumping etc.

He worked as Head of Cryogenics Dept. in Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Bombay and Centre for Advanced Technology (CAT), Indore, from 1966 to 1992.

He worked as Guest Collaborator with Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory of Universities Research Association, in Dallas, USA from 1990 to 1993.

He also worked at the Institute of Cryogenics, Southampton, U.K. as a Visiting Research Fellow from 1993 to 1994.

He was Head of the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Fr. Conceicao Rodrigues Institute of Technology, Vashi, Navi Mumbai, India for eight years.

He also worked as Head of Dept. of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering, and then as Principal, Vivekananda College of Engineering and Technology, Puttur (D.K.), India.

He was Professor and coordinator of Post-graduate program in the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering in St. Joseph Engineering College, Vamanjoor, Mangalore, India.

A book entitled “Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer” authored by him and published by M/s Pearson Education, India (2006) has been adopted as a Text book for third year engineering students by the Visweswaraya Technological University (V.T.U.), Belgaum, India.

He has authored a free e-book entitled “Software Solutions to Problems on Heat Transfer” wherein problems are solved using 4 software viz. Mathcad, EES, FEHT and EXCEL. This book, containing about 2750 pages, is presented in 9 parts and all the 9 parts can be downloaded for free from www.bookboon.com.

He has also authored free e-books on Thermodynamics entitled “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions” and “Applied Thermodynamics: Software Solutions” wherein problems are solved using 3 software viz. Mathcad, EES, and TEST. Each of these titles is presented in 5 parts and all the books can be downloaded for free from www.bookboon.com.

He has also written and published three booklets entitled as follows:

1. Towards Excellence…How to Study (A Guide book to Students)
2. Towards Excellence…How to teach (A guide book to Teachers)
3. Towards Excellence…Seminars, GD’s and Personal Interviews (A guide book to Professional and Management students)

Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar has attended several National and International conferences and has more than 50 publications to his credit.
