Author: Kalyan Annamalai, Ishwar K. Puri, Milind A. Jog
Description: Designed for readers who need to understand and apply the engineering physics of thermodynamic concepts, this volume features physical explanations along with mathematical equations so that the principles can be applied to real-world problems. Employing almost 300 illustrations to enhance clarity, the book first presents the phenomenological approach to a problem and then delves into the details. Using a self-teaching format, the authors forego esoteric material in favor of concrete examples and applications. The book includes several tables containing thermodynamic properties and other useful information, and additional material is available for download.
