Therefore, this book is set out with the aim to present this subject from an angle of demonstration of how these laws are used in practical situation. This book is designed for the virtual reader in mind, it is concise and easy to read, yet it presents all the basic laws of thermodynamics in a simplistic and straightforward manner; plus many /5(). The book goes from the fundamentals up to several applications in different scientific fields. The content of the book has been classified in six sections: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products, Non Equilibrium and Thermodynamics in Diverse Areas. Specifically, thermodynamics focuses largely on how a heat transfer is related to various energy changes within a physical system undergoing a thermodynamic process. Such processes usually result in work being done by the system and are guided by the laws of thermodynamics. The second law of thermodynamics is a physical law that is not symmetric to reversal of the time direction. This does not conflict with notions that have been observed of the fundamental laws of physics, namely CPT symmetry, since the second law applies statistically, it is hypothesized, on time-asymmetric boundary conditions.

What is the best Thermodynamics book? I am a senior in ME and have a real interest in Thermodynamics, but my professors don't really seem to know the subject all that great. One of them admitted to not really understanding it himself. Do you know of any excellent books I can get that will help me to learn and really understand thermo?

Thermodynamics is systematic in its presentation and covers many subjects that are generally not dealt with in competing books such as: Carathéodory's approach to the Second Law, the general theory of phase transitions, the origin of phase diagrams, the treatment of matter subjected to a variety of external fields, and the subject of irreversible thermodynamics.

The book provides a first-principles. The book "Thermodynamics: an engineering approach" by Cengel and Boles is a really good book as an introduction for mechanical and aerospace engineering students in their freshman years, except, it has many mistakes (typos in the middle of theory parts- even typos affect the meaning if you are not paying attention to what you are reading).

Each time I read this book I find the clarity of the exposition to be better and better. I am not sure if that is a sign of a good book or an increasing comfort level with the material. I often recommend this book to sophomores to begin looking at the "process of thinking thermodynamically" rather than for learning thermodynamics/5.

Engineering Thermodynamics - A Graphical Approach by Israel Urieli (latest update: 12/25/) This web resource is intended to be a totally self-contained learning resource in Engineering Thermodynamics, independent of any textbook. It is designed to be suitable for a two course sequence for Mechanical Engineering majors.

In my judgment, Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics by Moran et al is an excellent book, especially in its coverage of the difficult-to-learn subject of the 2nd law of thermodynamics and entropy.

Another good book is Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics by Smith and Van Ness. Download Applied Thermodynamics by Onkar Singh – This book presents a systematic account of the concepts and principles of engineering thermodynamics and the concepts and practices of thermal engineering.

The book covers basic course of engineering thermodynamics and also deals with the advanced course of thermal engineering. This book will meet the requirements of the undergraduate.
