There are a number of satisfactory advanced thermodynamics texts on the market, but virtually all of them take a rigorous theoretical and mathematical approach to the subject. Engineers need a more practical approach that they can readily apply to real problems. Advanced Thermodynamics Engineering fills that need with a down-to-earth approach that lays a strong conceptual foundation and provides simple, physical explanations. The authors stress a phenomenological viewpoint throughout the book and include more than 150 engineering examples that provide real-world applications of the material.
