This edition of "Thermodynamics" continues the tradition of providing a fundamentally sound, well-written, technically accurate text. This new edition addresses the needs of today's marketplace through the following enhancements: a greater emphasis on thermoeconomics and current real world applications, more design problems, more real world and visual problems, a re-vamped design and a stronger pedagogical program. The book will also be available with or without EES (Engineering Equation Solver) Problems Disk. Professor Donald E. Richards of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has been added as a co-author for this edition.
