Summary Although there are a number of satisfactory advanced thermodynamics texts on the market, virtually all of them take a rigorous theoretical and mathematical approach to the subject. Engineers need a more practical approach -- one that offers physical explanations and illustrative examples along with the mathematical relation and equations -- so they can readily apply them to real-world problems.
Advanced Thermodynamics Engineering fills that need. The authors take a down-to-earth approach that lays a strong conceptual foundation and provides simple, physical explanations for thermodynamic processes and the practical evaluation of thermodynamic systems. They employ a phenomenological approach throughout the book, stress applications, and include more than 230 engineering examples. The book includes simple spreadsheet-based software for obtaining thermodynamic properties including superheating and sub-cooling of fluids and flame temperatures.
This text eliminates the need for wading through the abstract generalized concepts and mathematical relations that govern thermodynamics. As a textbook, self-study tool, or, reference, it allows readers to understand the engineering physics of thermodynamics concepts and successfully apply them to their own fields.
