Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach (SIE)

This book covers the basic principles of thermodynamics while presenting a wealth of real-world engineering examples so students get a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. The authors explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and its use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply knowledge. Salient Features: -An early introduction to the First Law of Thermodynamics to set the framework of establishing a general understanding of various forms of energy, mechanisms of energy transfer, the concept of energy balance, thermo-economics, energy conversion, and conversion efficiency using familiar settings that involve mostly electrical and mechanical forms of energy. – A distinctive feature of this book is it’s emphasis on the physical aspects of the subject matter in addition to mathematical representations and manipulations. – Frequently, parallels are drawn between the subject matter and students’ everyday experiences so that they can relate the subject matter to what they already know.
