Overview

Written in the true spirit of engineering technology education, this non-calculus approach guides the student through a progression of heat and power thermodynamics topics . This text is application oriented and focuses primarily on problem solving. A real-world perspective is applied as careers in technology are used to present typical design calculations as they relate to each chapter.The advanced topics include; closed and open processes and cycles, enthalpy and entropy, Mollier diagrams, real gases, and irreversible processes. All are described in detail with an emphasis on calculations using technical math skills, graphs, tables and computers. Each chapter progressively builds upon the students understanding developed in prior chapters.
