Classical Thermodynamics - 05 edition

Classical Thermodynamics (ISBN10: 0195182154; ISBN13: 9780195182156)
ISBN13: 978-0195182156
ISBN10: 0195182154

Summary: Sophomore or junior engineering students will appreciate this in-depth analysis of the fundamentals of thermodynamics. The text notes common student problem areas such as definition of systems boundary, units, processes, work and heat. A review of energy resource consumption shows theimportance of energy resources to the economy and emphasizes thermodynamic analysis. The systematic approach to solving thermodynamic problems is supported by numerous chapter-end problems graded in thre
e levels of difficulty. Open-ended design problems are included in chapters 10-15 to reflectthe increasing emphasis on the need for design in core courses. Extensive treatment of second law analyses, including energy analysis/energy availability, helps students understand real systems. Explanation of how to maximize energy delivery from chemical reactions presents a solid background inimproving the design of reacting systems. Accompanying Thermo-Props software saves students time in looking up values from tables, and help in the analysis of psychmetrics, as well as heating, refrigeration, and air conditioning systems.
