Although the focus of this textbook is on traditional thermodynamics topics, the book is concerned with introducing the thermal-fluid sciences as well. It is designed for the instructor to select topics and seamlessly combine them with material from other chapters. Pedagogical devices include: learning objectives, chapter overviews and summaries, historical perspectives, and numerous examples, questions, problems and lavish illustrations. Students are encouraged to use the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) online properties database.Read more
- Integration of the thermal-fluid sciences is achieved by using the fundamental mass, energy, and momentum conservation laws as organizing principles and by using five practical applications - the steam power plant, the jet engine, solar-heated buildings, the spark-ignition engine, and biological systems - as themes throughout
- A problem-solving method is presented in Chapter 1 and all examples follow this method.
- Practical applications are stressed throughout and students are encouraged to use the National Institute of Science and Technology NIST-online thermodynamic property database to obtain thermodynamic and transport properties
Reviews & endorsements
"Thermodynamics can, perhaps, sometimes appear a bit of an old, somewhat involved and not very lively subject. This book demonstrates magnificently that it is a hot topic of great relevance to all aspects of technology. In a truly Herculean effort, Stephen Turns has produced a book that seems to make it impossible not to become first curious and then very well versed in the applications of thermodynamics to engineering. I think the book is ideal for any undergraduate course. It can be studied at various levels and will be an excellent source of motivation and inspiration for students...."
