9780123850737: Modern Engineering Thermodynamics - Textbook with Tables Booklet

Modern Engineering Thermodynamics - Textbook with Tables Booklet offers a problem-solving approach to basic and applied engineering thermodynamics, with historical vignettes, critical thinking boxes and case studies throughout to help relate abstract concepts to actual engineering applications. It also contains applications to modern engineering issues.

This textbook is designed for use in a standard two-semester engineering thermodynamics course sequence, with the goal of helping students develop engineering problem solving skills through the use of structured problem-solving techniques. The first half of the text contains material suitable for a basic Thermodynamics course taken by engineers from all majors. The second half of the text is suitable for an Applied Thermodynamics course in mechanical engineering programs. The Second Law of Thermodynamics is introduced through a basic entropy concept, providing students a more intuitive understanding of this key course topic. Property Values are discussed before the First Law of Thermodynamics to ensure students have a firm understanding of property data before using them. Over 200 worked examples and more than 1,300 end of chapter problems provide an extensive opportunity to practice solving problems. For greater instructor flexibility at exam time, thermodynamic tables are provided in a separate accompanying booklet.

University students in mechanical, chemical, and general engineering taking a thermodynamics course will find this book extremely helpful.

  • Provides the reader with clear presentations of the fundamental principles of basic and applied engineering thermodynamics.
  • Helps students develop engineering problem solving skills through the use of structured problem-solving techniques.

From the Back Cover:

Energy is emerging as one of the 21st century's biggest issues, and thermodynamics will play a central role in providing the world’s energy needs. An understanding of engineering thermodynamics helps an engineer analyze and design more efficient energy conversion systems -- systems that can range from automobile engines to fuel cells, from power plants to wind turbines. In Modern Engineering Thermodynamics, author Robert Balmer integrates modern theories with relevant applications to promote a greater understanding of the subject. Written in an easily accessible conversational style in which common student conceptual problems have been anticipated and addressed, this book is ideal for a one or two semester thermodynamics course at the sophomore or junior level.

Key Features:

  • Provides the reader with clear presentations of the fundamental principles of basic and applied engineering thermodynamics.
