Syllabus
Prerequisites: None
Target skills and knowledge: The students will be able to calculate the thermodynamic properties of real fluids and mixtures of real fluids, the calculation of vapor-liquid, liquid-liquid and solid-liquid phase equilibria for real fluids and real fluid mixtures and the mass transfer for multiphase multicomponent systems.
Examination methods: Oral examination
Assessment criteria: Oral examination for theoretical part of the course and evaluation of experimental laboratory
Course unit contents: Principles of statistical mechanics. Techniques of molecular simulations: Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics. Thermodynamic models of intermolecular potentials and equations of state for pure fluid and multi-component systems: cubic equations of state and perturbation theory. Computational methods for equations of state. Phase equilibrium calculations: vapor-liquid, liquid-liquid and solid-liquid. Thermodynamics of systems containing associating fluids, polymers, membrane and hydrogel. Thermodynamics of colloidal systems. Osmotic pressure e thermodynamic of biological systems. Thermodynamic properties and model parameters. Non-equilibrium thermodynamics.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Conventional teaching, numerical and experimental laboratory.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Scientific papers provided during class
