- Engineering : The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to economically use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
- Chemical engineering : The field of engineering that deals with industrial and natural processes involving the chemical, physical or biological transformation of matter or energy into forms useful for mankind, economically and safely without compromising the environment
- Thermodynamics : The statistical description of the properties of molecular systems
- Condensation (phase transition) : A process in which the vapor phase of a substance is changed into the liquid phase.
- Condenser (heat transfer) : A heat exchanger in which a vapor is converted to a liquid by transferring heat from the vapor to a coolant.
- Enthalpy : Energy function of thermodynamic system equal to internal energy plus pV (pressure times volume).
- Entropy (thermodynamics) : Thermodynamic variable S appearing in the second law of thermodynamics.
- Gas : One of the major states of matter (i.e., gas, liquid, solid and plasma).
- Gas compressor : A machine that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume.
- Expansion turbine : A centrifugal or axial flow turbine through which a high pressure gas is isentropically expanded to produce work.
- Flash evaporation : The partial vaporization that occurs when a saturated liquid stream undergoes a reduction in pressure by passing through a throttling valve or other throttling device.
- Joule-Thomson effect : The increase or decrease in the temperature of a real gas (as differentiated from an ideal gas) when it is allowed to expand freely at constant enthalpy (meaning that no heat is transferred to or from the gas, and no external work is extracted from the gas).
