Thermodynamics - Using the Steam Tables
What you'll learn
- After taking this course, students will know how to select the correct steam table to use during problem solving.
- Student must have a knowledge of basic thermo concepts like pressure, temperature and specific volume. A textbook with steam tables is also helpful. I will be using the tables from the 'Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics' by Moran.
Have you worked Thermodynamics problems only to get stuck by not knowing which table to use? Should it be compressed liquid, saturated liquid, superheated vapor...which table should it be?! I have heard this frustration from many Thermodynamics students. They know how to solve the problem but just get stuck on the tables. If you have felt this frustration then this short course is for you! In this course you will learn how to choose exactly which table you need. We will also cover phase change, pressure-specific volume diagrams as well as liquid-vapor mixture quality. I also provide you with an easy-to-use flowchart to help you along.

Who this course is for:
- Students taking an introductory Thermodynamics course or students just interested in learning about thermdynamic concepts
I graduated from Auburn University with a M.S. and PhD in Aerospace Engineering. After graduation I began worked as a Systems Engineer at Lockheed Martin. After working in industry for 8 years I decided to focus on teaching full time.
I have 18+ years of teaching experience and have helped 1000's of students transform from freshmen to successful engineers. Some of the courses I teach include: Statics, Dynamics, Thermodynamics, MATLAB, Numerical Analysis, Controls, Fluid Mechanics and Solid Mechanics. I have taught at Auburn University, University of North Texas and Texas Christian University.
I believe in teaching my courses in a way that I wanted to be taught when I was in school...plenty of examples, not a lot of theory. Many instructors don't understand the learning needs of their students. They give complicated lectures full of theory but then hardly ever work out examples. The examples they do work tend to be simple or the examples already presented in the course textbook.
This is why I recently founded STEM Course Prep. STEM Course Prep is meant to help struggling students succeed before they have to drop or fail a class.
My courses have plenty of detailed examples with only the theory and derivations you really need. My current Udemy course offerings are MATLAB Parts 1 and 2, Numerical Analysis, Thermodynamics, Statics, Dynamics Parts 1 and 2, Fluid Mechanics Parts 1, 2 and 3, Controls, Orbital Mechanics and more.
If you like my Udemy courses you'll love the courses on my website STEM Course Prep. My courses offered there feature additional content, homework, exams etc. There are also courses like Mechanics of Materials and Intermediate Dynamics that are not found on Udemy.
Thanks for your interest!
