Thermodynamics for the Practicing Engineer
by Louis Theodore

Thermodynamics for the Practicing Engineer's focus is on applications of thermodynamics, addressing both technical and pragmatic problems in the field.

Thermodynamics for the Practicing Engineer's four parts enable readers to easily gain a foundation in basic principles and then learn how to apply them in practice:

Part One: Introduction
Sets forth the basic principles of thermodynamics, reviewing such topics as units and dimensions, conservation laws, gas laws, and the second law of thermodynamics.

Part Two: Enthalpy Effects
Examines sensible, latent, chemical reaction, and mixing enthalpy effects.

Part Three: Equilibrium Thermodynamics
Addresses both principles and calculations for phase, vapor-liquid, and chemical reaction equilibrium.

Part Four: Other Topics
Reviews such important issues as economics, numerical methods, open-ended problems, environmental concerns, health and safety management, ethics, and exergy.

Readers will be better prepared when approaching/addressing advanced material and more complex problems.
