Overview

Written in an informal style that makes abstract concepts easier to understand, PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS promises to transform the way students learn thermodynamics. This first edition provides strong coverage of fundamental principles and applications, asking students to explore how changes in a particular parameter alter a device's or process's performance. This approach helps them develop a better understanding of how to apply thermodynamics in their future careers, and an intuitive feel for how components are interrelated. Students are encouraged to develop computer-based models and to take advantage of the speed of Internet-based programs and computer apps to find thermodynamic data, just as practicing engineers do.

  • Well-placed and practical examples in every chapter help students understand the use of thermodynamics in solving engineering problems.
  • The author uses a methodical approach (clear explanations, real world examples, and a wealth of exercises) to help students learn a process for solving problems.
  • Software is used to develop graphs and show trends, helping students develop engineering judgment.
  • The book is software-neutral so students can use any package they are familiar with (for example, MATLAB or Mathcad).
  • Steam tables are included in the appendix, but the emphasis is on using software to solve thermodynamic problems.
