Editorial Reviews

Revised edition of a textbook that provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of engineering thermodynamics from the classical viewpoint, as a basis for subsequent courses in fluid mechanics and heat transfer, and as preparation for the use of thermodynamics in professional practice. Enough material is provided for an introductory course in engineering thermodynamics and for a follow-up course dealing mainly with applications. For this edition, over 40% of the approximately 1,300 end-of-chapter problems have been revised or replaced. A background in elementary physics and calculus is assumed. Annotation c.
