Topic outline

  • General

    Compulsory course in Sustainable metals processing and Creative Sustainability (CHEM) majors 

    Thermodynamics of pure substances and energetics of chemical reactions and their reactions with simple gas mixtures. Applications of the developed skills to the industrial applications including heat/energy balances.

    After the course the student can
    • calculate heat and energy balances in industrial reactors and processes,
    • calculate chemical equilibria between gas mixtures and pure substances and knows the energetic relations of chemical reactions,
    • construct and apply various equilibrium and phase diagrams

    Course textbook David R. Gaskell: Introduction to the thermodynamics of materials (2008) available in Aalto University library e-books in the  ProQuest collection.

    Lectures, exercises and workshops will be held in hybrid mode. They will be arranged on campus with zoom connection for people joining remotely. The zoom link for the lectures is
