Now with an even stronger pedagogical framework, Moran and Shapiro's Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics (SI Version) presents a comprehensive treatment of engineering thermodynamics, enabling students to develop a deeper, more complete understanding of subject.


Key features:

  • Includes worked examples and over 1200 end-of-chapter questions.

  • New Thermodynamics in the News items tie reports from the popular press, such as fuel cells, to concepts covered in the text.

  • A strong problem solving methodology encourages readers to develop an orderly approach to problem solving, to think systematically and to reduce typical errors.

  • End of chapter material builds problem solving skills in three modes: Conceptual (Exercises: Things Engineers Think About); Skill Building (Problems: Developing Engineering Skills); and Exploration (Design and Open-Ended Problems: Exploring Engineering Practice).

  • Supplementary material for students and lecturers is provided on an accompanying website.

  • Design/Open-Ended Problems provide brief design experiences that provide opportunities to think creatively, apply constraints and consider alternatives.

  • Thorough development of the second law, featuring the entropy production concept and exergy analysis, provides a state-of-the-art introduction to second law analysis.
