Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach
This text aims to present the key topics in thermodynamics in an accessible manner, using a physical intuitive approach rather than a highly mathematical one. Over 1000 illustrations are used to illustrate the topics, and the worked examples are also illustrated with sketches and process diagrams.
