A comprehensive, best-selling introduction to the basics of engineering thermodynamics. Requiring only college-level physics and calculus, this popular book includes numerous illustrations and graphs to help students learn engineering concepts.
A tested and proven problem-solving methodology encourages readers to think systematically and develop an orderly approach to problem solving:
- Provides readers with a state-of-the art introduction to second law analysis.
- Design/open-ended problems provide readers with brief design experiences that offer them opportunities to apply constraints and consider alternatives.

From the Back Cover
Now with an even stronger pedagogical framework, Moran and Shapiro's Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics (SI Version) presents a comprehensive treatment of engineering thermodynamics, enabling students to develop a deeper, more complete understanding of subject.
- Includes worked examples and over 1200 end-of-chapter questions.
- New Thermodynamics in the News items tie reports from the popular press, such as fuel cells, to concepts covered in the text.
- A strong problem solving methodology encourages readers to develop an orderly approach to problem solving, to think systematically and to reduce typical errors.
- End of chapter material builds problem solving skills in three modes: Conceptual (Exercises: Things Engineers Think About); Skill Building (Problems: Developing Engineering Skills); and Exploration (Design and Open-Ended Problems: Exploring Engineering Practice).
- Supplementary material for students and lecturers is provided on an accompanying website.
- Design/Open-Ended Problems provide brief design experiences that provide opportunities to think creatively, apply constraints and consider alternatives.
- Thorough development of the second law, featuring the entropy production concept and exergy analysis, provides a state-of-the-art introduction to second law analysis.
