Using a classical viewpoint, this Second Edition offers a comprehensive treatment of engineering thermodynamics in order to provide a sound basis for subsequent courses in heat transfer and fluid mechanics and to prepare students to use thermodynamics in professional practice. New features include more than 1300 end-of-chapter problems ranging from confidence-building exercises to more challenging issues that may involve systems with several components, including numerous problems requiring the use of a computer; over 100 design and open-ended problems which are intended as brief design experiences affording students opportunities to develop their engineering judgment and creativity; the International Temperature Scale and refrigerant material; plus interactive software designed to reinforce important ideas and hone students' problem-solving skills.

From the Back Cover:

A proven pedagogical framework gives students the support they need!

Now with an even stronger pedagogical framework, Moran & Shapiro’s Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics presents a comprehensive treatment of engineering thermodynamics. The text helps you develop a deeper and more complete understanding of the subject.

Here’s how Moran & Shapiro’s approach works:

  • 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, think systematically, and reduce typical errors.
  • End-of-chapter materials 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).
  • Online study guide, including key concepts summaries and additional homework problems with answers and selected solutions, offer tools to test your understanding of chapter material.
  • 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 energy analysis, provide a state-of-the-art introduction to second law analysis.
  • IT: Interactive Thermodynamics software (purchased separately) features property data calculation, systems modeling, and “what if’ calculation capabilities, so you can explore more realistic thermodynamic system behavior.
  • ThermoNet tutorials for basic engineering concepts feature animations, pop-up quizzes, and additional worked examples. Available through the book’s website.
