About the Authors
  • This book differs from other thermodynamics texts in its objective which is to provide engineers with the concepts, tools, and experience needed to solve practical real-world energy problems. The presentation integrates computer tools (e.g., EES) with thermodynamic concepts to allow engineering students and practicing engineers to solve problems they would otherwise not be able to solve. The use of examples, solved and explained in detail, and supported with property diagrams that are drawn to scale, is ubiquitous in this textbook. The examples are not trivial, drill problems, but rather complex and timely real world problems that are of interest by themselves. As with the presentation, the solutions to these examples are complete and do not skip steps. Similarly the book includes numerous end of chapter problems, both typeset and online. Most of these problems are more detailed than those found in other thermodynamics textbooks. The supplements include complete solutions to all exercises, software downloads, and additional content on selected topics. These are available at the book web site

    • Integrates software tools including EES to allow the solution of realistic problems
    • Unique exercises are more challenging than those in the standard texts
    • Robust web site includes additional chapter content free to download, extra problems, and software downloads
    • Complete solutions are available to qualified instructors

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The quality of the paper and the print are excellent and the handling of the book is easy despite its volume. It deserves a recommendation for students in engineering, but also for physicists who are interested in technical realisation of physical concepts." - Manual Vogel, Contemporary Physics, 2013

    "With supplements including software downloads and additional problems and solutions available on an accompanying website, this volume can serve as a lifelong resource for the practicing engineer." - CEP, April 2012
