2 Reviews
Presents a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of engineering thermodynamics from the classical viewpoint, while inculcating in the reader an orderly approach to problem solving. Text provides a thorough development of the second law of thermodynamics (featuring the entropy-production concept), an up-to-date discussion of availability analysis (including an introduction to chemical availability), and a sound description of the application areas. Topics covered include control volume energy analysis, vapor power systems, gas power systems, thermodynamic relations for simple compressible substances, nonreacting ideal gas mixtures and psycrometrics, reacting mixtures and combustion, and chemical and phase equilibrium. Contains 138 solved examples and over 1200 end-of-chapter problems, some requiring the use of a computer.
