Features

  • Offers a practical approach using divers physical examples drawn from across various aspects of engineering
  • Illustrates advanced thermodynamic principles with examples and applications relevant to the performance of thermal systems, including compressors, turbines, heat engines and pumps, and combustors
  • Stresses the concepts of entropy generation and availability because of their importance to the energy system in conservation strategies
  • Incorporates almost 300 illustrations
  • Summary

    Advanced Thermodynamics Engineering, Second Edition is designed for readers who need to understand and apply the engineering physics of thermodynamic concepts. It employs a self-teaching format that reinforces presentation of critical concepts, mathematical relationships, and equations with concrete physical examples and explanations of applications—to help readers apply principles to their own real-world problems.

    Less Mathematical/Theoretical Derivations—More Focus on Practical Application

    Because both students and professionals must grasp theory almost immediately in this ever-changing electronic era, this book—now completely in decimal outline format—uses a phenomenological approach to problems, making advanced concepts easier to understand. After a decade teaching advanced thermodynamics, the authors infuse their own style and tailor content based on their observations as professional engineers, as well as feedback from their students. Condensing more esoteric material to focus on practical uses for this continuously evolving area of science, this book is filled with revised problems and extensive tables on thermodynamic properties and other useful information.

    The authors include an abundance of examples, figures, and illustrations to clarify presented ideas, and additional material and software tools are available for download. The result is a powerful, practical instructional tool that gives readers a strong conceptual foundation on which to build a solid, functional understanding of thermodynamics engineering.
