Intended as a textbook for #147;applied#148; or engineering thermodynamics, or as a reference for practicing engineers, the book uses extensive in-text, solved examples and computer simulations to cover the basic properties of thermodynamics. Pure substances, the first and second laws, gases, psychrometrics, the vapor, gas and refrigeration cycles, heat transfer, compressible flow, chemical reactions, fuels, and more are presented in detail and enhanced with practical applications. This version presents the material using SI Units and has ample material on SI conversion, steam tables, and a Mollier diagram. A CD-ROM, included with the print version of the text, includes a fully functional version of QuickField (widely used in industry), as well as numerous demonstrations and simulations with MATLAB, and other third party software.
What if there were no constraints on the use of photographs and graphics; if books could show objects dynamically to illustrate their multi-dimensional characteristics; and if new and revised material could be added at frequent intervals in response to direct feedback from users? Welcome to ThermoNet! Combining a concise text and Web component, ThermoNet not only covers standard thermodynamics topics but also enhances learning through interactive animations, tutorials, exercises, and problems. An integrated learning package that brings thermodynamics to life: Developed by engineering educators with partial support from the National Science Foundation. Incorporates a Web-based resource where words are used to support visual representations. Utilizes graphics-rich environments to help readers gain a strong conceptual understanding of the material. Includes an interactive presentation of governing equations that clearly shows the physics underlying each term. Focuses the reader's attention on the fundamental principles and motivates them to master the concepts.
Carefully designed to teach thermodynamics to engineers, this book focuses on the phenomena of irreversibility and the notion of entropy. It also presents a general theory of exergy, with methods of analyse that allow engineers to master problems of current interest in the field of energy management. The authors illustrate practical aspects of the theory by descibiing specific applications such as combustion chambers, turbines, compressors, heat pumps, fuel cells, refrigeration, and more.
