Grounded in the axiomatic formulation and Gibbsian analytical structure of classical thermodynamics, this revised volume offers an incisive examination of the history, concepts, and language of thermodynamics. Readers will find a clear review of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, along with enhanced material on exergy analysis methods, entropy generation minimization, and related design applications. Complete with original problems, worked-out examples, exceptional graphics, and hundreds of references throughout. Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics, Second Edition is the ideal cutting-edge reference for today's professional engineers and researchers as well as a superb resource for advanced engineering students.

Editorial Reviews

Bejan (mechanical engineering, Duke U.) presents a textbook for a course open to students who have had previous contact with the subject through one of the many standard introductory textbooks. Based on the axiomatic formulation and Gibbsian analytical structure of classical thermodynamics, he examines the history, concepts, and language of the field; and reviews applications in power generation, solar energy, low-temperature refrigeration, and other areas. First published in 1988. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Meet the Author

ADRIAN BEJAN, PhD, is the J. A. Jones Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University. He received his engineering degrees from the Massachu-setts Institute of Technology (BS 1972, MS 1972, PhD 1975). An internationally recognized authority in heat transfer and thermodynamics, Dr. Bejan has pioneered the methods of entropy generation minimization, scale analysis, heatline visualization of convection, and buckling flows. He is the recipient of the Worcester Reed Warner Medal (1996), Heat Transfer Memorial Award (1994), James Harry Potter Gold Medal (1990), and Gustus L. Larson Memorial Award (1988), all from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Dr. Bejan is the author of 250 articles and eight books, including the Wiley books Convection Heat Transfer (Second Edition), Heat Transfer, and Thermal Design and Optimization (with G. Tsatsaronis and M. Moran).
