Applications of Thermodynamics Laws. Carnot, Stirling, Ericsson, Diesel cycles

Thermodynamics is considered to be one of the most essential parts of our daily life. Whether you are travelling in any vehicle, sitting comfortably in your air-conditioned room, watching television etc, you will gape the applications of thermodynamics almost everywhere directly or indirectly.

Sadi Carnot, the boy considered to be the father of thermodynamics, proposed theorem and cycle, hardly anybody had imagined that his proposals will play such a major role in creation of automobiles that would become one of most notable parts of the human life. The development of almost all types of engines can be traced to the Carnot Theorem and Carnot Cycle. At this stage of our life can we imagine the life without automobiles. Of course one cannot forget the importance of Stirling, Diesel, Otto and Ericsson also created their beget independent cycles that resulted in more innovations and betterment of the automobiles.

The explore of thermodynamics involves various laws of thermodynamics that include: First Law of Thermodynamics, Second Law of Thermodynamics, Third Law of Thermodynamics, Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics, Boyle’s law, Charles Law, etc. The foundation of these laws was laid by Sadi Carnot with his invention of the Carnot Cycle and Carnot Theorem. The gaze of these laws of thermodynamics assist unravel numerous mysteries of the nature, not only for materialistic achievement, but also for gaining spiritual wisdom, for a number of these laws like the third law related to entropy helps thought the secrets of existence of the human life.

To understand various concepts of thermodynamics some valuable terms related to thermodynamics have to be understood. The inspect of the thermodynamics involves system and surroundings where all the experimentation is done for the discovery of the intention. There are various types of thermodynamic processes that benefit implementing thermodynamic laws for various thermodynamic applications.

1) All types of vehicles that we utilize, cars, motorcycles, trucks, ships, aeroplanes, and many other types work on the basis of second law of thermodynamics and Carnot Cycle. They may be using petrol engine or diesel engine, but the law remains the same.

2) All the refrigerators, deep freezers, industrial refrigeration systems, all types of air-conditioning systems, heat pumps, etc work on the basis of the second law of thermodynamics.

3) All types of air and gas compressors, blowers, fans, accelerate on various thermodynamic cycles.

4) One of the critical fields of thermodynamics is heat transfer, which relates to transfer of heat between two media. There are three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation. The view of heat transfer is broken-down in wide range of devices like heat exchangers, evaporators, condensers, radiators, coolers, heaters, etc.

5) Thermodynamics also involves view of various types of power plants like thermal power plants, nuclear power plants, hydroelectric power plants, power plants based on renewable energy sources like solar, wind, geothermal, tides, water waves etc,

6) Renewable energy is an valuable subject region of thermodynamics that involves studying the feasibility of using different types of renewable energy sources for domestic and commercial consum.

The list of the applications of thermodynamics is very long and if you want to mention the individual applications, these can be infinite. Thermodynamics involves the gawk of infinite universe and it indeed has infinite applications. No other field of behold is as closely associated to human life as thermodynamics. For me the glimpse of thermodynamics is the path to salvation.
