9780130215390: Thermodynamics and Heat Power (6th Edition)

This widely used and highly regarded book is the ideal source for anyone interested in gaining insight into the fundamentals of thermodynamics. Stresses the fundamentals of thermodynamics and heat power, thoroughly covering the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, the ideal gas, vapor and gas power cycles, refrigeration, and heat transfer. For engineers who want to learn more about the basics of thermodynamics or need a source for a thorough review of the discipline.

From the Publisher:

Using calculus for enrichment throughout and updated to include the latest technological advances, this practical and user-friendly text stresses the fundamental principles of thermodynamics and heat power, offering comprehensive coverage on such topics as elementary kinetic theory of gases, internal energy, applications of the First Law of Thermodynamics, the Carnot cycle, thermodynamic properties of steam, entropy changes of the ideal gas, air-water vapor mixtures, nuclear reactor power cycles, diesel engines, refrigeration, heat transfer and more.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Many colleges and universities require two semesters of thermodynamics for a bachelor's degree in engineering technology. Most students and faculty would, I believe, welcome having one good textbook for both courses. With this in mind, additional material has been added in this seventh edition. Principally, this includes:

  • A Windows-based computer disk with thermodynamic properties of steam, air, other gases, and refrigerants, as well as psychrometrics.
  • A discussion and additional problems involving the non-flow work integral.
  • Extension of the analysis of the Rankine cycle to include regeneration with both closed and open feedwater heaters and an additional reheat cycle.
  • Analysis of the maximum work Brayton cycle with calculus enrichment.
  • Thermal analysis of the reciprocating compressor with additional homework problems.
  • Metric unit equations for convection coefficients.
  • A description of the heat pipe and how it functions.
  • A discussion of the cooling of electronic components and how to determine the operating temperature of components.
  • A description of state-of-the-art alternative energy sources, including fuel cells, solar energy, and wind power.

To make room for these additions, some out-of-date material on other power plant cycles and nuclear reactors has been removed. Many of these changes have resulted from the input of reviewers. A special thanks goes out to the following reviewers of the previous edition: Ed Braun-University of North Carolina, Charlotte; Mohammad Hossain-York Technical College; and Charles Rondeau, Jamestown Community College. I am most grateful for those comments. Please keep them coming.

Thanks to the staff at Prentice Hall for their help with this new edition, especially Debbie Yarnell, Louise Sette, Adam Hirschberg, and most of all Kim Yehle. I also thank my family for their support and encouragement: Maris, Karen, Richard, Jennifer, Michaelbarry, and Jaxanna.
