## INTRODUCTION TO THERMODYNAMICS OF MATERIALS

Thermodynamics deals with energy and its transformations
Structure of materials determines properties. Thermodynamics is used to:
understand how the properties of materials are affected by thermodynamic processes (processes that involve changes in the material energy)
to control properties through its determination of structure
Thermodynamics includes two subjects:
Classical thermodynamics:
Phenomenological in nature focuses on the macroscopic properties
of materials and their relationships
Statistical thermodynamics:
Based on how the material behaves at the microscopic level allows
the description of the macroscopic properties

THERMODYNAMIC VARIABLES
The state of a material system is described with the value of certain
variables of the system: T, P,V, S, c, etc.
A thermodynamic process is a real or virtual change in the system state
affected by varying the variables of the system such that the system is no
longer at equilibrium. A process is completed when the system reaches
its new equilibrium state.
State variables are independent of the system history and depend only on
the system state and not on the process by which the system was taken to
that state. For any state property,
R(A B) = RB RA
Process variables are defined only when a specific path is specified i.e.
by how the process was carried out. Examples include the heat q and work
w.

## EXTENSIVE AND INTENSIVE VARIABLES

Intensive variables do not depend on the system size and can be defined
at any point in the system: Examples include T , P, etc.
Not additive as they do not scale with the system size
Extensive variables depend on the system size and cannot be defined at
a point in the system, e.g. V , m, N (number of atoms), etc.
Additive as they scale with the system size, e.g. V + = V +V
Derived intensive quantities can be defined by scaling with another
extensive quantity
Densities can be introduced by scaling with total volume: Vm , VN , etc.
Nj
, also denoted as
The molar species number is defined as N j = Ntotal
X j ( j X j = 1). We will later introduce the partial molar value of any
E
extensive property E as Ei = N
|T,p,N j such that E = i NiEi
i
Partial quantities are used to associate chemical species with intensive
quantities, e.g. the partial pressure of species j: Pj = X j P ( j Pj = P)

## THERMODYNAMIC SYSTEM AND ITS BOUNDARY

Thermodynamic system separated from its surroundings from its system
boundary
System boundaries can be: rigid, impermeable, adiabatic or any combinations
System types include:
Isolated No energy or matter may be passed through its boundary
(e.g. the universe)
Closed or open allowing or not exhange of matter
Adiabatic No heat transfer can pass through its boundary
Single- or multi-component
Reacting or non-reacting
Homogeneous (single phase) or heterogeneous (multiple phases)

## ENERGY AND THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS

Energy is the potential to do work it can only be measured indirectly in
terms of other system variables such as m,v (e.g. E = 12 mv2), etc.
First law of thermodynamics
The energy of the universe is constant
Any change in the change of the energy of a system is balanced by an
opposite change in the energy of the surroundings. This change in the
energy of the surroundings is transferred to the system as heat or work
through the system boundary
When we talk on the energy of a system we usually mean the internal
energy U: The energy associated with the atomic motions in the material
(the kinetic and gravitational energy sources are typically ignored)
The internal energy U is intrinsic to the body

N. Zabaras

## THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS

We define the energy of the system as a state variable U, e.g.
U = U(P,V ) and U = U(P2 ,V2 ) U(P1,V1)
For all processes, the change of U for the system is balanced by an equal
and opposite change of U of the surroundings
The 1st law of thermodynamics is stated as: dU = q + w
q is the heat transfered to the system and w is the work done on the
system
w represents energy transfers due to forces other than temperature
w = i Fi dxi in terms of generalized forces and displacements, e.g.
the compression work for a pure fluid: w = PdV (note dV < 0 for
compression)
H
H
q and w are not exact differentials, e.g. dw = PdV = 0

FORMS OF WORK dw = V E dD +V H dB +V i j i j + . . .
POLARIZATION WORK: dw = V E dD
Let E be the applied electric field and D the electric displacement
P the polarization of the material due to local charge displacement
The following relations are applied:
D = 0E + P, 0 = the permittivity of free space
For isotropic materials: P = 0E, is the dielectric susceptibility and
thus D = E, = 0(1 + )=permittivity of the material
dw = V E dD w = 12V E 2
P = 0E
= dielectric susceptibility tensor
The response of the material depends on the orientation of E with
respect to the crystal orientation
Introduction to thermodynamics of materials

## Materials Process Design and Control Laboratory

N. Zabaras

FORMS OF WORK dw = V E dD +V H dB +V i j i j + . . .
MAGNETIC WORK: dw = V H dB
Let H be the applied magnetic field and B the magnetic induction of the
local net field
I the magnetization of the material (magnetic moment per unit volume)
The following relations are applied:
B = 0H + I, 0 = the permeability of vacuum
For isotropic materials: I = 0H, is the magnetic susceptibility
> 0 the induced magnetic moments align with H paramagnetic
material
< 0 the induced magnetic moments aligns antiparallel with H diamagnetic material
Thus B = H, = 0(1 + )=magnetic permeability of the material
dw = V H dB w = 12V H 2

## HEAT AND WORK

Heat transfer occurs when there is a temperature gradient
Heat flows from regions of high T to regions of low T
Heat is the transfer of energy accomplished through random and chaotic
atomic motions
Heat transfer is thus a disordered process
Work is an ordered process of organized atomic motions

HEAT CAPACITIES
q
Constant volume heat capacity CV : CV = T
|V = U
T |V
q
Constant pressure heat capacity CP: CP = T
|P

## One can show that generally CP > CV

Consider two ideal (fluid) systems that receive the same q under constant V and P conditions, respectivelly:
R TV
R Tp
TV T0
<CP >
=
q = T0 CV dT = T0 CPdT (using mean value theorem) <C
TP T0
V>
After the end of the constant V process, with a subsequent process
one should be able to expand the fluid and bring it to the same conditions as those at the end of the constant P pressure. At this additional
process, work is done on the surroundings. We can store this work
and pass it back as heat to the system (under constant V ) thus leading
<CP>
>1
to an increase in T : Thus TV > TP <C
V>
larger difference between CP and CV for gases rather then liquids
for solids the difference between CP and CV is negligible

## THE FIRST LAW FOR IDEAL PROCESSES

General form with compression work: dU = q PdV
Adiabatic processes q = 0: dU = PdV
Isothermal processes dT = 0: dUT = qT PT dVT
Isobaric processes dP = 0: dUP = qP PPdVP
Isometric processes dV = 0: dUV = qV
For all processes, to computer dU, one needs to know
an equation of state P(T,V )
comes from the specific properties of a material (material property)
and the heat flow dq

## THE FIRST LAW FOR IDEAL GAS PROCESSES: U = U(T ) and

PV = nRT (or PV = RT ), R = gas constant = 8.3144 joules/(degree mole)

## A NEW STATE FUNCTION: ENTHALPY H = U + PV

Defined by subtracting from the internal energy the compression energy
H is the heat associated with constant pressure processes:
dH = dU + PdV + dPV (using the 1st law) dH = q +V dP
dH|P = q|P
Thus H can be interpreted as the available thermal energy at constant P
For constant P and small PdV (small dV and small P):
dH = U + PdV U
This approximation is applicable to condensed phases
Can now redefine CP as follows:
q
|P = H
|
CP = T
T P

## NATURAL DIRECTION OF PROCESSES

REVERSIBLE PROCESSES
The natural direction of processes is one which increases the entropy
(randomness) of the universe
transform organized motion (e.g. work) to disorganized motion (e.g.
heat)
A process is reversible when it can reverse itself with an infinitesimal
driving force: they involve no production of entropy and occur infinitely
slowly
e.g. solidification of a pure material at the melting temperature

## Materials Process Design and Control Laboratory

16

N. Zabaras

SPONTANEOUS PROCESSES
A process is spontaneous if it proceeds without an external driving force
and produces entropy
equalization of T when two bodies of initially unequal T are brought in
contact
conversion of work into heat
e.g. heat flows down a temperature gradient without an external force
spontaneous processes are irreversible: cannot create order from disorder
As a spontaneous process continues, the system is brought near equilibrium and the ability of the system for a spontaneous change is decreased

17

N. Zabaras

## THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS

Entropy is a state function that can be expressed in terms of measurable
coordinates of the system and is an intrinsic property of the system related to
the degree of disorder in the system
The change of the entropy of the universe (system and surroundings) is positive and zero only for reversible processes:
dStotal 0, dStotal = 0 only for reversible processes
As one of the many alternative statements of the 2nd law, we can also state
that heat is not observed to spontaneously pass from a cold to a hot body
The entropy of a system can be computed by a reversible path from an arbitrary chosen reference state by integrating the heat absorbed by the system
divided by the system temperature

18

N. Zabaras

## REVERSIBLE PROCESSES: dSrev = dqTrev

dV
For an ideal gas undergoing a reversible process: dqTrev = CV dT
+
nR
,
T
V
which implies that dqTrev is integrable over segments of dT and dV and
thus at least for ideal gases a state function

We call this perfect differential dS, the new state function S called
entropy
Any process can be considered as a
number of segments of constant T
and V
For a reversible process, the only heat involved is the transfer of energy
between the system and the surroundings via heat
No additional random motion is generated in the system or in the surroundings
Introduction to thermodynamics of materials

19

N. Zabaras

## ORDER AND DISORDER

The disorder (randomness) of the system is measured in terms of quanta
of energy, atom arrangements and motion, etc.
A material is more ordered as a crystalline solid than liquid
The system disorder is related to the detail required to specify the microscopic state of the system
Example: Isothermal expansion (dU = 0) of an ideal gas
V2
dU = 0 = dqrev pdV dqrev = pdV = nRT dV

q
=
nRT
ln
rev
V
V1

S = nRlnVV21

For V2 > V1 , S > 0: the expanded gas has higher entropy as its randomness has increased (more places for an atom to be!)
Introduction to thermodynamics of materials

20

N. Zabaras

## EQUIVALENT FORMS OF THE SECOND LAW

No process is possible in which heat (disordered motion) is absorbed from
a resorvoir and is completely converted to work (ordered motion)
The entropy change dS of a system is associated with a transfer of entropy
from the surrondings dStrans (which can be > 0 or < 0) and from entropy
dSprod produced within the system (always dSprod > 0):
dS = dStrans + dSprod, dSprod > 0

For irreversible processes
Since U is a state function, one can find a reversible process that connects the
states (S + dS,V + dV ) and (S,V ). This will result in the same dU as for the
irreversible process and all equations given above for reversible processes are
still applicable!
R any state dqrev
T = 0 taken as the reference state:
S(any state) = T =0

(3nd Law of thermodynamics)

22

N. Zabaras

## THE WORK DONE BY THE SYSTEM IS MAXIMUM FOR

REVERSIBLE OR QUASISTATIC PROCESSES
Consider a change of the material state from A to B. Using the 1st law:
UB UA = q + w
The entropy change of the system that absorbs heat dq from a resorvoir at
temperature Tr is: dSs = dq
Tr + d, d 0 from the 2nd law
+ d
From the first law: dq = dUs dw dSs = dUsTdw
r
dw = Tr dSs dUs Tr d dw Tr dSs dUs
For a constant Tr (large reservoir) by integration of the equation above:
w Tr (SB SA) (UB UA) wmax
Conversely the work which must be done on a system to bring it to a given
state is minimum for reversible processes. For irreversible processes a
greater amount of work is needed & energy is dissipated as heat

## EXAMPLE OF ENTROPY CREATION IN THE SOLIDIFICATION OF

AN UNDERCOOLED MELT AT CONSTANT P
Consider 1 mole of undercooled lead at 590
K (Tm = 600 K)
cP(l) = 32.4 3.1 103T joules/degree,
cP(s) = 23.6 + 9.75 103T joules/degree and
latent heat of lead qrev = 4810 joules/mole
To find Ssys we follow the reversible path
R b cP(l)dT qrev
a b c d: Ssys = a T + Tm +

R
Hab +Hbc +Hcd = ab cP(l) dT qrev cd cP(s)dT = 4799 joules

and the entropy created is: S = Ssys + Sreservoir = 7.994 + 8.134 =

These developments are not applicable to open systems or closed systems that undergo irreversible changes in composition
All earlier developments are of course still applicable for the universe
Let us see why dU = T dS pdV becomes ambiguous
For an isolated system dU = dV = 0 dS = 0
However dS can increase because of a chemical reaction of because of
mixing of various substances that were initially separated
Let us similarly see why dG = SdT +V dP becomes ambiguous
Consider dT = dP = 0 dG = 0
However dG can increase just by doubling the amount of the system
at constant T and P (G is extensive)

## For a reversible change in composition of a closed system,

ki=1 idni can be interpreted as the chemical work (work
other than compression work)
For open systems, we cannot interpret ki=1 idni as work:
When there is simultaneous transfer of energy and
mass as in open systems, the term heat is ambiguous
and we cannot interpret T dS as heat so the remaining terms in the equation above cannot be interpreted
as work! (see Denbigh, section 2.7)

## INTEGRATION OF THE BASIC EQUATIONS

Let us consider dU = T dS PdV + ki=1 idni
Let the phase under examination be enlarged from V to kV
T , P & i remain unchanged (intensive variables). Thus we can write:
k

U = T S PV + ini ()
i=1

## Because U, S and ni are extensive variables, U = (k 1)U, S =

(k 1)S and ni = (k 1)ni and Equation () becomes:
(k 1)U = T (k 1)S P(k 1)V + ki=1 i(k 1)ni. Finally:

## DERIVING G = ki=1 ini USING THE CONCEPT OF

HOMOGENEOUS FUNCTIONS
With T and P being intensive variables, we note that:
G(T, P, n1, . . . , nk) = G(T, P, n1, . . . , nk )
e.g. G is homogeneous in ni of degree 1
Differentiation with respect to leads to the following:
dG(T, P, n1, . . . , nk )

## MOLAR QUANTITIES FOR A ONE COMPONENT ALLOY

Consider a phase with one component: dU = T dS PdV + dn ()
We have already defined the molar variables: V = Vn , S = Sn , etc. From
these equations, we can write:

dU = ndU + Udn,
dS = nd S + Sdn,
dV = ndV + V dn
Equation () can thus be written as:

= T (nd S + Sdn)
ndU + Udn
P(ndV + V dn) + dn
or as follows:
ndU = T nd S PndV + ( U + T S PV )dn ()
We have shown that G = ki=1 ini (for k = 1 here)
= Gn = U+PVn T S = U + PV T S
Equation () is then simplified as follows: dU = T d S PdV

## PARTIAL MOLAR QUANTITIES FOR A MULTI-COMPONENT ALLOY

addition to T and P depend on the relative proportions of the various
components, e.g.

## REVISITING THE EQUILIBRIUM CONDITIONS

From the 2nd law: Suniv 0
For an isolated system, we also can write: Ssys 0
For an isolated system there are no interactions with the surroundings
For a given process that changes the system state, all changes in the
entropy of the universe are localized within the system
Since there is no heat transfer between the system and its surroundings,
all changes in Suniv represent entropy generated within the system
For an isolated
system:

Suniv 0
Suniv = Ssurr + Ssys 0
Ssys 0

Since Ssys can only increase, is there a maximum in the system entropy?
In an isolated system at equilibrium Ssys is maximum

EQUILIBRIUM CONDITIONS
Spontaneous processes increase the entropy of the system
The driving forces in a spontaneous process are the potential for entropy
increases
When the driving forces for spontaneous change in the system become
exhausted, the system reaches equilibrium
In an isolated system at equilibrium Ssys is maximum
For any possible variation S with U = V = 0, the following is
true: S|U=0,V =0 0 S is maximum at constant U and V
Equivalently: For any possible variation U with S = V = 0:
U|S=0,V =0 0 U is minimum at constant S and V

## HOW DO YOU CHECK IF A SYSTEM IS AT EQUILIBRIUM

We maximize the entropy of an isolated system
The state conditions are the same regardless if the system is isolated
or not
To check if the system is in equilibrium, we perform a virtual experiment: We isolate the system and check if its state remains
unchanged.
Note that systems that appear to be in steady-state conditions are not
necessarily at equilibrium
The internal conditions of the system need to be responsible for the
steady-state conditions and not an external driving force
For example, a system corresponding to steady-state temperature
conditions within an applied temperature gradient is not at equilibrium (isolating the system will lead to temperature changes!)

## EQUILIBRIUM MINIMUM INTERNAL ENERGY

We showed earlier that:
dU = T dS PdV + dn
dU = T dS PdV + dn
Since the system is isolated:
dV = dV
dS = dS
dn = dn
Finally we can write for the whole system:
dU = (T T )dS (P P)dV + ( )dn
Minimization of the internal energy for an isolated system leads to:
T = T (thermal equilibrium)
P = P (mechanical equilibrium)

## EQUILIBRIUM MINIMUM ENTHALPY

FOR P=CONSTANT
dH = T dS +V dP + dn
dH = T dS +V dP + dn
If we isolate the system, we obtain:
dS = dS
dn = dn
For the whole system:
dH = (T T )dS +V dP +V dP + ( )dn
Let us minimize H with constant P: dP = dP = dP = 0:
T = T (thermal equilibrium)
dP = dP = dP = 0 (constant pressure constraint)
= (chemical equilibrium)
Equilibrium is thus obtained when H is minimized under constant
pressure for an isolated system (constant material and entropy)

dF = SdT SdT (P P)dV + ( )dn
Let us minimize F with constant T : dT = dT = dT = 0
dT = dT = dT = 0 (constant temperature constraint)
P = P (mechanical equilibrium)

Equilibrium is thus obtained when F is minimized under constant
temperature and the boundary is rigid and impermeable

Let us minimize G with constant T and P:
dT = dT = dT = 0 (constant temperature constraint)
dP = dP = dP = 0 (constant pressure constraint)

Equilibrium is thus obtained when G is minimized under constant

## THE CHEMICAL POTENTIAL k FOR A

MULTI-COMPONENT MULTI-PHASE ALLOY
For each phase: dU = T dS PdV + Ck=1 k dnk
The chemical potential

is defined as:

U
|S ,V ,n j
n
k

## A chemical potential gradient means that there is a driving force

for diffusion
As species move from regions of high potential to regions of
low potential, the potential is lowered in the regions from where
species came and increases in the regions where they arrived
Equilibrium conditions imply elimination of all driving forces for
diffusion, i.e. of all chemical potential gradients
