Description

This text is written entirely in SI (metric) units.

This well-established text covers the fundamentals of engineering thermodynamics, their application to particular fluids and the ways in which work and heat transfer are affected.

Features

  • Uses the alternative and increasingly popular sign convention for work transfer.
  • Provides a thorough revision for the treatment of perfect gas or combustion, particularly disassociation and several aspects of heat transfer.
  • Discusses combined cycle plant, cogeneration schemes, low temperature power cycles and pollution problems.
  • Written entirely in SI (metric) units.
