Covers classical thermodynamics, including the first law, second law and physical property relationships with engineering applications. Balancing coverage theory with applications, the text presents a discussion of thermodynamic principles as well as an engineering approach to problem solving that encompasses modelling and other real world aspects in the field. The applications in the book are closely coupled to the fundamentals, and the relationship of thermodynamic laws to physical properties. The text takes an applications-oriented approach, reflecting the actual practice of engineering, including illustrations from engineering practice and from student experience, and contains reminders to check relevant judgement factors such as reasonableness of values, estimates, significant digits, assumptions needed and others. Software models provide basic equations and data that students can combine and adapt to specific problems based on their knowledge of the material.
