JNTUH B.Tech 2016-2017 (R16) Detailed Syllabus Thermodynamics of Materials

Thermodynamics of Materials Detailed Syllabus for B.Tech second year second sem is covered here. This gives the details about credits, number of hours and other details along with reference books for the course.

The detailed syllabus for Thermodynamics of Materials B.Tech 2016-2017 (R16)  second year second sem is as follows.

B.Tech. II Year II Sem.    L/T/P/C
Course Code: *MC300HS 4/1/0/4

Course Objective: The prime aim of the course is to apply thermodynamics to various metallurgical
aspects like Solution, Phase Diagrams, Diffusion, and Ellingham Diagrams. The course is also intended to
correlate electrochemical principles with thermodynamics

Course Outcome: The student will be able to establish a thermodynamic perception with
Metallurgical Processes and slove the Problems associated with the same.

UNIT-I DIFFUSION: Fick’s law of diffusion and its application, Kirkendal effect, Darken’s equations,
the Metano Method, determination of intrinsic diffusivities, Diffusion mechanisms in metals, self diffusion in pure metals, diffusion along grain boundaries and surfaces, Temperature dependence of the diffusion coefficient

UNIT-II ELLINGHAM DIAGRAMS: Introduction, calculation of equilibrium constants from standard energy changes, general description of Ellingham diagrams, Interpretation of two or more
free energy change vs. temperature lines taken together, derivation and uses of the oxygen, nomographic scale in Richardson’s diagrams.

UNIT-III SOLUTIONS: Composition, partial molal quantities, Gibb’s – Duhem equation, integration of
Gibbs’ – Duhem equation, ideal dilute solutions, ideal solutions, Raoults Law, actual (Non-ideal) solutions (Henry’s Law), Sieverts law, Excess thermodynamics quantities.
