About This Book:
This revised and fully updated text, now in its Second Edition, continues to provide a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles of classical thermodynamics starting with the most elementary ideas of heat and temperature. The book also focuses on practical applications of thermodynamic processes and equips students with simple techniques of solving engineering problems.
The book begins with the basic concepts of properties of matter, work, mechanical energy, potential energy and temperature, and then moves on to explain the laws of thermodynamics. It continues to discuss in detail the auxiliary functions, properties of substances, thermodynamics of combustion, ideal cycles and internal combustion engine cycles. The book concludes with a chapter on Brayton Cycle.
