Engineering Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics
Third Edition
by Adrian Bejan

Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics is an authoritative treatment of the first and second laws of thermodynamics and the constructal law of natural generation of flow configuration, with prominent focus on the history of the discipline and its main ideas.

Features:

  • Complete chapters on single-phase systems, multiphase systems, chemically reactive systems, exergy analysis, thermodynamic optimization, irreversible thermodynamics, and constructal theory
  • Applications of thermodynamics to power generation, solar energy, refrigeration, air conditioning, thermofluid design, and constructal design
  • The latest theoretical advances made based on the constructal law: atmospheric circulation and earth climate, animal design (flying, running, swimming), hierarchy and geography of human settlements, scaling laws of all river basins, flow fossils and Egyptian pyramids, and science as a constructal flow architecture
  • A wealth of problems and worked-out examples
  • Brilliant, original illustrations, plus hundreds of classic and contemporary references
