note explains the following topics: Classification of Thermodynamic Cycles , Gas
Power Cycles, Gas Power Cycles for Different Applications, Compressors:
centrifugal and axial-flow, Combustion chambers, Turbines.
note covers the following topics: Work and Heat, First Law of Thermodynamics,
Pure Substances and Steam Tables and Ideal and Real Gases, Basics of Energy
Conversion cycles, Second Law of Thermodynamics, Entropy, Availability and
Carefully observing everyday motion allows us to deduce six essential
statements: everyday motion is continuous, conserved, relative, reversible,
mirror-invariant and lazy. This text explores how these six results are deduced
and how they fit with all those observations that seem to contradict them.
Clearly written treatment elucidates
fundamental concepts and demonstrates their plausibility and usefulness.
Language is informal, examples are vivid and lively, and the perspectivie is
fresh. Based on lectures delivered to engineering students, this work will also
be valued by scientists, engineers, technicians, businessmen, anyone facing
energy challenges of the future.
This book presents the selection of various high level
contributions involving thermodynamics. 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.
