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 www.cambridge.org/KleinandNellisRead more
- Integrates software tools including EES to allow the solution of realistic problems
- The book's unique exercises are more challenging than those in the standard texts
- A robust website www.cambridge.org/KleinandNellis 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."

"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."
"I have found that thermodynamics is one of the most difficult subjects to learn for students and teach for lecturers. This book navigates the subject with precision and in a friendly and reassuring tone … The care that has gone into putting this book together is extraordinary and the result is one of the best textbooks on thermodynamics available, not only for engineering but also for physicists and chemists. I recommend it highly as a course textbook to undergraduates and university lecturers and as a solid reference for researchers."

This is an excellent book for senior and graduate courses on thermodynamics. It has the advantage of developing clearly and step by step several concepts with examples and solved problems. This book helps the instructor to make the students active and involved.
